The selection of hybrids with good yield potential has great importance in greenhouse tomatoes culture in order to improve the economic efficiency of this crop. Consumer interest in the quality of vegetable products also increased in the last years. In this experiment six tomato hybrids for fresh consumption recommended for greenhouse culture were evaluated as yield potential and quality of fruits.
