Abstract


In the last decade, it has been reported that the consumption of certain foods can have a positive effect on an individual's health. Food provides not only energy, essential amino acids, fiber, vitamins and minerals, but also some active compounds, such as antioxidants (tocopherols, carotenoids, vitamin C, phenolic compounds, etc.) that can have various beneficial functions in the body. It is found that in almost every measurement the values from the field experience are lower, this fact being due to the extreme weather conditions in spring-summer 2019 and the destruction of approximately 70-75% of the field culture. But we also have exceptions: the diameter of the fruits from the De cayenne variety and those from the Arwad F1 hybrids is larger in the field culture than in the solarium culture by 0.21 mm for De cayenne and 1.93 mm for Arwad F1. The fruits are longer in solarium culture ranging between 9.13 cm (local variety) and 17.06 cm (Hyffae F1).
