Thousands of peach cultivars are grown in the world and the breeders annually obtain new ones. Peaches are appreciated fruit for their nourishing and therapeutically qualities. The peach is a species with good adaptation and high yields under Romanian climate and soil conditions. The Romanian breeders made efforts to create valuable native cultivars. The aims were to obtain new peach, pavie, nectarine and brugnone cultivars with high qualities of fruit, big and constant productivity of trees, different habits of trees, various ripening time, etc. In the last 25 years the following cultivars showed good pomological results: ‘Raluca’, ‘Filip’ and ‘Florin’ – peach; ‘Costin’ and ‘Marina’ – nectarine; ‘Anemona’ – brugnone, homologated in 2010; ‘Mimi’, ‘Minodora’ and ‘Iustin’ – the new introduced clingstone cultivars, patented in 2014.
