ABSTRACT
Apricot is a species less cultivated than other Prunus species, particularly peaches and plumps. This stone fruits species is a typical temperate fruit crop which has been dispersed and has become well adapted in the countries surrounding the Mediterranean Basin. Consequently, in spite of being spread geographically, apricots have not become pomologically important except in areas with special ecological conditions. In our country although favorable climatic conditions of apricot culture there are only in south-west and west has become a important economical species. The Research Station for Fruit Growing Baneasa have an important role both in implementation and extending valuable varieties from collection but also through breeding of new apricot cultivars. Selections studied were very productive in the years of investigation. The biggest fruit were produced by 83.7.28 BI and 84.4.41 BIV selection. Each selection is represented by five trees, considerable differences in time and in intensity of blooming, ripening period in other characters were observed in two seasons. The influence of the cultivar was more determinant than the seasonal effect on fruit yield.
