ABSTRACT
Benincasa hispida (winter melon, wax gourd or ash gourd) is a common vegetable widely grown in East and South Asia, with a very large fruit which by maturity loses its hairs and develops a waxy coating. The fruit is used in traditional medicine due to its proprieties: anti-inflammatory, demulcent, diuretic, expectorant, febrifuge, laxative and tonic, etc. The present paper presents the results of a field research regarding the cultivation of this plant in the pedoclimatic conditions of Romania. The research was carried out in an ecological experimental field from south of Romania (in the period May-October 2012) and is very important for the introduction to culture of this plant in our country. The results obtained and presented in this paper reveal the degree of adaptation to climate and soil and the physicochemical proprieties. Due to our results we consider that B. hispida is a plant that can be grown in our country with good technological and economical performances.
