This study presents the methodology to achieve a plantation of wild rose, using fourvarieties of Rosa Canina from wild flora of Transylvania. Also has been considered: how to harvestthe plant material, market demand for vegetable raw material costs to establish, maintain the cultureand life of a culture. Vegetative material consists of four varieties of Rosa Canina, seen as valuable fortheir high content in vitamin C, fruit size and productivity. These varieties were selected based onmacroscopic, biophysical and biochemical studies. The results obtained can be achieved in a breedingground to be studied, characteristics of the four biotypes considered valuable. These characteristics canbe improved by scientific methods of selection and be homologated the plants which provide the bestefficiency. Planting material created and certified must then be extended by a specific technology to alarger culture.
