Abstract


Phaseolus vulgaris is one of the most important vegetables with high nutritional value consisting in proteins, iron, magnesium, folic acid and complex carbohydrates. The aim of this study was to obtained a dwarf french bean genotype with the following characteristics: yield and quality potential, earliness and extreme environmental conditions. The variety was obtained by repeated individual selection and now is submitted to the conservative selection program. For all agro-morphological characters, descriptive statistics were calculated. The pods of Anisia beans are yellow and have a simultaneous maturation, easing the harvesting process. The average weight of a pod at consumption maturity was 4.23 g. The yield potential of fresh pods varies between 18-20 t/ha. From our studies, Anisia cultivar is suitable for cultivation both organically and conventionally. The research has been completed with obtaining of a new variety of dwarf french bean that has been registered in the Official Catalogue of Romanian Crop Plants under the name ‘Anisia’. The variety has a distinct phenotypic expressiveness with a high yield and quality potential.
