According to the literature, a number of morphometric values of flower from varieties of Prunus domestica may be correlated with their degree of fertility. We chose four local populations of plums from Pătârlagele area, Buzau County, to measure the floral components - sepals (length), petals (length), stamens (number and length), carpel (length) and to compare them with the literature. The results of our observations shows the presence of a local variability regarding the perianth, the average number of stamens, the average length of the carpel and the ratio between the number of stamens and the length of the carpel; for the T3 and T4 populations there are slight differences from literature on the average length of petals. The ratio of average number of stamens and carpel length shows low values for the four populations (range 1.35 to 1.63) compared with the data from literature, indicating the possible presence of selfincompatibility among the four local populations of Prunus.
