Yield and quality evaluation of processing tomatoes cultivars obtained in Romania
This work is aimed to present the newly obtained cultivars that have been evaluated for six years. In the experiment the renowned Rio Grande tomato cultivar was used as control for yield evaluation. Rio Grande and Rio Fuego were used as controls in order to assess the fruits quality. Phenological and biometric measurements and also biochemical analyses of the fruit were carried out during the vegetation period and the results obtained showed that the new cultivars correspond to the undertaken objectives. In what concerns crops yield, all five cultivars surpassed the control yield. Of these, Darsirius and Mariuca have plum-shaped fruit, Kristinica and Florina 44 R have rounded fruit, Florina 44 T has rounded slightly pointed blossom end fruit. Concerning the earliness, Kristinica ranked the first place, its fruit reach physiological maturity at 90 days after planting, and the latest is Mariuca, whose fruits ripen at 130 days after planting.
