V.R.D.S. Buzău has a great tradition in the process of breeding for this species. Here were maintained by conservative selection the first valuable Romanian eggplants like ʻDanubianaʼ, ʻBucuresteneʼ, ʻPana Corbuluiʼ along with ʻZarazaʼ and ʻDragaicaʼ. Recently, the first hybrid of eggplants obtained by the Breeding Laboratory was patented, and registered in the Romanian Official Catalogue for Crop Plants under the name of ʻRebeca F1ʼ. As a result of the researches made over time the Laboratory gathered an important germplasm collection and numerous informations regarding the activity of breeding this species. At this time, the germplasm collection is being compound of over 60 valuable genotypes with distinct phenotypic expressivity for their shape, size and colour. Stable genotypes that are a very important part of this paper were obtained. These have large white fruits, red coloured, brindled, green etc. Of these, the accession A 10 (Camelia), with large white fruits is in the final testing stage for patenting and will be extended on a large scale in production
