Mortgage Lifter Heirloom Tomato

After ordering Mortgage Lifter Tomato plants from another company that were yellow, had black leaves & died, I discovered GrowJoy. I ordered the same plants from them & was pleasantly surprised when they arrived. The plants were big, beautiful, bushy, & healthy plants. They went in my garden last weekend & have grown a lot since then. I would highly recommend this company for garden plants. I am so happy I found this company & will definitely buy from them again next year.

GrowJoy plants arrived in wonderful condition. This season I ordered from several companies and and these plants were by far the healthiest looking. I am looking forward to harvest to compare size and taste but I already know I will be ordering here next year !!

The Mortgage Lifter Tomato plant appeared to be crushed when it arrived but I watered it and it was back to normal in a couple of days. It is now growing fast and looking very good.

Was I ever surprised when I saw these heirloom tomato plants for the first time! I was expecting much less for a mail order, but, was pleasantly surprised! They were so huge, bigger than the ones I would have normally bought at my local nursery!
