The aim of this study it was that of following the behavior in culture on field on RDCFCSS Dabuleni – Romania, on a sandy soil, of 12 cultivars of water melons of which 9 are hybrids of foreign provenance and 3 local varieties. It were made observations and determinations concerning the morphological characters and the production of the cultivars such as: the vegetative growth of plants, the flowering and the fruits binding date, the number of fruits/plants, the average weight of a fruit and the productions on cropping stages. Following the obtained results it was found that the highest production was registered on 'Baronesa’ F1 cultivars and 62-269 F1 with 47.9 t/ha, followed by LF 6720 with 44.9 t/ha and 'Oltenia’ with 43.6 t/ha.
