Pisum sativum also known as garden peas is one of the major food legumes that can grow in different regions, and it ranks the fourth in world food legume productions next to soybean, peanut, and dry bean. At Vegetable Research Development Station Buzau, a new breeding program of peas has started and 15 stable accessions were taken into study. The focus of the present study was to evaluated the yield potential and the best suited sown decade for 15 peas accessions. The crops were severely affected by excessive rainfall, (in May and June) which however, it was found that the accessions sown in the first decade had higher yields compared to the accessions in the second decade, both at green peas maturity and at physiological maturity. Thus, the lowest value for weight of 1000 grains was at A11 with 212.04 g, and the highest was obtained by A1 with 455.25g. In terms of yield potential, it was noted that A8 had the lowest value/sqm (102.01 g), and A10 was the accession with the highest weight/sqm (295.53 g), at physiological maturity. A9 was the earliest accession, followed by A1, and the latest accessions were A6 and A7.
