Sweet pepper is an important vegetable used in Romania and it holds a significant area crop. At present, there are a lot of new varieties of sweet peppers in Romania, but, unfortunately, most of them comes from worldwide seed producers. Being demand for autochthonous competitive varieties, suitable for growing in greenhouse, Vegetable ResearchDevelopment Station Buzău has been preoccupied with obtaining of new varieties of sweet peppers. This study was conducted to investigate the qualitative and quantitative potential of two new varieties, ˈIdealˈ and ˈCarminˈ. As the study shown, ˈIdealˈ variety has a higher yield potential, while ˈCarminˈ variety has a higher content of vitamin C. Dry matter content and soluble substances it has higher values in ˈIdealˈ variety. New bred varieties have demonstrated downstream genetic stability in the phenotypic expressiveness of the main characters and have also recorded highquality yield production, thereby contribute to the enrichment of the inland assortment suitable to be cultivated in greenhouses.
