The Genetic, Breeding and Biodiversity Laboratory from Vegetable Research and Development Station Buzau (VRDS Buzău) has a valuable germplasm collection of hot pepper consisting of 200 genotypes structured by their genetic stability. In this study, seven genotypes were characterized from an agro-morphological point of view. The aim of this study was to choose the most valuable genotypes for directions of use as: fresh consumption, chili powder or for pharmaceutical use. The agro-morphological results will be used in the breeding program to obtain new genotypes adapted to the pedoclimatic conditions of Romania.
