Tomato, German Johnson

A parent line that gave rise to the illustrious Mortgage Lifter. Large lobed fruits with pinkish-red skin.
Originally grown in West Virginia, this heirloom was one of the parent lines for another cherished heirloom: the legendary Mortgage Lifter. With pinkish-red skin and nearly seedless meaty, mild flesh, the large, lobed fruits weigh ¾-1½ lb. A favorite variety for slicing or canning. The disease-resistant, indeterminate vines thrive in hot, humid areas.
