Charlie was a mechanic who lived at the bottom of a steep hill. When large trucks would overheat trying to go up the hill, they had to go see Radiator Charlie for help. The tomatoes he developed by crossing several varieties were so delicious, he was able to sell plants for $1 each in the 1940s! He was able to pay off his mortgage, hence the name.
