Bean germplasm collection of Vegetable Research and Development Station Buzău, Romania, contain over 450 accessions. The maintenance of this collection must accomplish the following requirements: maintaining the variability of this species (Phaseolus vulgaris L.), creating new varieties and adaptability to the climate changes in what it concerns these accessions. In 2020, this collection was cultivated in green - house covered with polyethylene. This paper presents the comparative study of 10 climbing bean seeds accessions. The seeds of each accession were evaluated in what it concerns quantitative (100 seed weight, length, thickness and width) and qualitative characteristics (seed colour, brilliance, veining and shape). The seeds weight varied between 57.57 g (V5) and 28.88 g (V3). More than half of the seeds variants taken into study, presented white colour, except: V1 and V3 - different beige and V5 presents 2 colours (half white, half dark red). The highest values regarding seeds length and width were registered at V10 (17.03 and 9.11 mm). All accessions presented are stabile and it presented stability during the last growing seasons.
