The expansion of apricot consumption depends on the marketing, the quality of the fruit upon harvesting and on their cost. Market trends that have an impact upon apricot consumption are: globalization, the need for year round supplies of produce, the high cost labour, the diversification of the safety issues of pesticide use and bacterial contamination of fresh fruit. These pressures have renewed the interest in production systems in order to extend the harvest season, to reduce chemical inputs and to ensure a consistent fruit quality. Therefore, our efforts were focused on developing new varieties with high quality of fruit, higher levels of production, a greater diversity of fruit types to market and the adaptation to climate changes which have recently begun to occur. In this paper we studied the characteristics of the VT 66.30.52 hybrid, having as witness the variety Marculesti 22/4. The experimental determination was conducted the at Research Station for Fruit Growing Constanţa between 2012 and 2015. The hybrid VT 66.30.52 proved to be superior to the witness in terms of weight of the fruit, their firmness, the dry matter and the colour of the skin.
