Lately can be observed that the organic agricultural system is more and more developed not only in our country, but all over the world, having a continuous ascending, in parallel with the formation of a specific market. In some countries, this organic (biological or ecological) agricultural system, had known a considerable growth of more than 20% in only one year (in USA, France and Japan). From farmers point of view the organic production represents a better way of capitalization, while the vegetables obtained using this system are more and more consumed raw or slightly processed, and have a high attraction for a specific segment of consumers which is becoming more and more consolidated. The experimental factors of this research were: the planting density (64.4 thousand plants/ha, 44.4 thousand plants/ha and 33.3 thousand plants/ha) and the hybrid (Szatmar, Crispina, Pasalimo and Mirabelle). The research was conducted in the west part of our country, respectively in Husasău de Tinca locality, during 2007-2009.
