The 'Mortgage Lifter' is commonly thought of
as a tomato; which also goes by such a trademark.

Also known as the Pueblo or Aztec bean, it is a large
white heirloom dried bean which enlarges significantly in
size when soaked.

If you don't care for the taste of Lima beans, you may
not like this one, as it does have a bit of a Lima or
Butter bean taste.
