The studies were carried out, comparative, both in the plum collections of the Fruit Growing Institute Plovdiv - Bulgaria and Research Institute for Fruit Growing Pitesti - Romania, with 4 plum cultivars of different origin: ‘Tuleu timpuriu’ (Romania), ‘Cacanska Lepotica’ and ‘Cacanska Najbolja’ (Serbia) and ‘Stanley’ - control (USA). In the period 2002 - 2008 were carried out observations and determinations of: blooming and ripening times, production capacity, quality of fruit and response of plum cultivars to Plum pox virus. Varieties in both areas were noted by large fruit and superior comparative with quality control variety Stanley. In terms of yield capacity none of the 3 varieties did not exceed the control (‘Stanley’ cv.), in any of the two areas of culture. In Plovdiv - Bulgaria, period of blooming and ripening, of the studied varieties was earlier than in Pitesti - Romania. It should be noted that ‘Tuleu timpuriu’ Romanian variety gave better results in Plovdiv than in Pitesti.
