(Solanum lycopersicum) Kentucky family heirloom grown since the 1930s
by three generations of James Halladay’s family.
In a trial of 25 Mortgage Lifter types, Halladay’s
produced the best crops of 1-2 pound pink beefsteak
fruits. Exceptionally meaty and typically crack-free.
Great old-fashioned tomato flavor. Indeterminate,
80-90 days from transplant.
6 weeks before last frost
Cage, stake or trellis
Green Thumb Tip Sow seeds indoors ¼" deep. Tomatoes are sensitive
to freezing temperatures, so wait to transplant
outdoors until the soil is warm. Plant in full sun.
