The pedoclimatic conditions of the Buzau vegetable reservoir are favorable for the Solanum melongena species, therefore, begining with 1996 the researches aiming breeding Solanum melongena were made in an intensive approach at V.R.D.S Buzau. At this time, the unit owns a rich germplasm colection comprising over 200 genotypes that are in different breeding stages. The unit has pattented and registered in the Official Catalogue of Romanian Plant Crops the following cultivars: Dragaica, Zaraza and Rebeca F1. Begining with the year 2018, a new cultivar of white eggplants has been pattented and will be expanded widely in crop cultivation. While being tested at ISTIS Bucharest, V.R.D.S Buzau has offered seeds and seedlings promotionally for the growers and included in the internal program of conservative selection the seed production for this cultivar. The feedback received from the consumers was positive, the cultivar being distinguished by a great production capacity of a very high quality. In the present, in the internal program of conservative selection the seed had reached the stage of Basic seed, recording in fields a visible decrease of the main features variability starting with the Author’ s seed until Basic seed. The cultivar is suitable for growing under protected spaces and open field conditions being distinguished by distinct phenotypic characteristics.
