V.R.D.S. Buzau is well known for tomato breeding, over time here were obtained valuable varieties appreciated by both consumers and growers. Currently, V.R.D.S. Buzau has an important germplasm collection consisting of over 1500 genotypes in different breeding phases. Since 1996, research on breeding this species were intensively undertaken, been obtained for the first time in our country hybrids with a certain destination. The research carried out so far has mainly focused on the germplasm evaluation accumulated to identify genotypes with distinct features for the breeding process, as well as availability and genetic stability in the progeny. The study aimed the observation of shape, size and fruit color to identify distinct features. The stable identified genotypes were organized into two groups: cherry type varieties and large fruits of different shapes like pear, bell peppers, long pepper, lemon, banana varieties, with different colors like white, various shades of yellow, red, pink, brown, black, burgundy varieties. Two of these genotypes have been proposed for patenting and are to be expanded on a large scale in production.
