About Stormin Norman

‘Stormin Norman’ is a very beautiful and prolific multiflora-type tomato variety developed by Blane Horton of Galactic Magic Seeds, Jacksonville, Mississippi, USA. It produces a huge yield of beautiful, brown, pear-shaped cherries (0.4oz./12g). Selected from the ‘Keyes’ series* – the original cross was made between ‘Black Plum’ and ‘Sweet Beverley’.
‘Stormin Norman’ was named after General Herbert Norman Schwarzkopf Jr., who was a United States Army general leading the coalition forces in the Gulf War (1990-1991) and whose nickname was Stormin’ Norman.
This is how Blane Horton describes this variety: “My personal favorite selection from the ‘Keyes’ series, brings on great flavors, high output, on multiflora vines, ‘Stormin Norman’ has been a proven winner and a great addition to the hyper truss collection. Expect plants to have cages or staking to support the fruit set, and allow for six to seven feet in growing height. The plum cherry type will be the brown/maroon coloring.”
Brown fruits have dark red flesh and green gel. Very good tomato taste, juicy, sweet, and very aromatic fruits are similar to ‘Sinister Minister’ tomatoes, but ‘Stormin’ Norman’ produces large, multiflora type trusses while ‘Sinister Minister’ has small, regular trusses. Indeterminate, regular leaf plants. Midseason.

* The ‘Keyes’ series offers many colors of small, pear-shaped selections, including brown, red, pink, amber, green, black, deep orange/brown, yellow, and a bi-colored.
