The V.R.D.S. Buzău breeding laboratory has put a great emphasis on maintaining the biodiversity of this species by constituting a valuable germplasm collection which has 84 genotypes and it is still growing. Our unit, V.R.D.S. Buzău, has patented so far two varieties, 'Dragaica’ and 'Zaraza’, and recently the F1 hybrid Rebeca. After evaluating their genetic stability it was found that 36 genotypes are stable, 23 are in an advanced form of stabilization and 25 accessions are still segregating. Researches completed until now by stabilizing an important number of valuable accessions with distinct phenotypic expressivity: A 10 with white fruits, A25A with brindle markings of white and purple, A 26 has purple fruits, A20 with small egg-shaped fruits, A29A. A29B, A29C and A29D with small red fruits at the physiological maturity, arranged in raceme, and of different shapes: round, ovoid, pumpkin etc. From all this varieties, the A10 accession was proposed for patenting and homologation, and will be followed by other varieties that are still under evaluation.
