Fig (Ficus carica L.) is a Mediterranean fruit specie that have been introduced from centuries in our country by Greeks, Romans, Ottomans and probably, Armenians colonists. Even it is a thermophile plant, fig trees are spread all around the country, several genotypes being found. Recently, a certain interest on fig cultivation raised, and there is a request of valuable cultivars and respectively, planting material. At the Faculty of Horticulture in București, an important collection of fig genotypes found in Romania and introduced from Italy and Iraq, was started in 2015 and since then their evaluation is in process. The present paper presents the selection process of 25 fig genotypes, with interesting pomological characteristics, fruits measurements being performed in accordance with IPGRI descriptors. Fruit biochemical analyses on soluble solids, glucose and fructose were realized. The results showed that some of local and foreign genotypes produced no fruits or had very small fruits. All the analyzed parameters were influenced by the genotype. The plants that produced good results concerning fruit quality, size, taste and cracking resistance, will be further studied in order to observe their productivity and resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses.
