Abstract


The Breeding and Biodiversity Laboratory within the Vegetable Research and Development Station Buzău with 11 tomato varieties listed in the Official Catalogue of Cultivated Crops in Romania and a valuable resource of Solanum lycopersicum germplasm composed of over 2,000 genotypes, focused its research to obtain tomato varieties for precise use: fresh consumption and industrialization. Starting from a valuable traditional variety (‘Inimă de bou’ – ‘Ox Heart’), the aim was to obtain a new, improved variety of tomato for consumption of fresh fruits, with large, juicy fruits highly appreciated on local market. Research resulted in the approval and patenting of the ‘Andrada’ tomato variety with distinct genotypic and phenotypic characteristics.
