The almond (Prunus dulcis (Miller) D.A. Webb) crop started to regain interest for the farmers in Romania. Dobrogea is one of the most suitable regions for almond orchards. The key factor that limits the almond crop in Romania is the early flowering time, flowers and young fruits being suddenly affected by the spring frosts. In this study, the phenology of four Romanian and four foreign almond cultivars, grown in a super high-density trial orchard, in Greci, Tulcea County, is presented. The phenology study using BBCH scale was performed in 2021 and 2022 vegetative seasons, in order to determine the most suitable late and very late blooming cultivars for Dobrogea region. It resulted that Marinada and Lauranne have a very late blooming time, while the Romanian cultivars Nico and April, have an medium, medium to late blooming time. This study presents original data that could be of interest for scientists but also for farmers whom intend to plant new almond orchards.
