The research carried out at Vegetable Research and Development Station Buzău showed that among the heirloom varieties grown in Romania there is a variety of chilli pepper, 'Cornul Caprei’, which has been widely cultivated as a local landrace population on large areas especially between Buzău farmers. Over time, due to introduction into new varieties, it was depreciated in terms of distinguishing characters. That is why, from 2002, Vegetable Research and Development Station aim was to rehabilitate the variety. The research had been finalized in 2015 when 'Decebal’ variety derived from the local landrace population of 'Cornul Caprei’ was patented. The variety can be cultivated successfully in arable area or in greenhouse, it has a high production potential and it can be used fresh and preserved. The aim of this study was to evaluate the variability of the main characters in conservative selection process. The research undertaken at the Laboratory of Breeding and Biodiversity has shown that the margin of variability of the main character has progressively decreased from the selection field to base field.
