Researches undertaken were aimed to verify the behavior of some varieties and hybrids of eggplant in conditions of soil and climate of the Vidra area. The cultivars were studying in terms of earliness, yield and resistance of the attack of soil born pathogens. There have been studied 12 genotypes of eggplant: 6 varieties and 6 hybrids. The cultivars Epic F1 and Daniela were the earliest and the variety Black Beauty and the F1 hybrid Mirabelle the latest. Average fruit weight ranged from 250 g (Belona) and 560 g (Rebeca F1). The yield ranged from 38.2 t /ha (Bibo F1) and 51.0 t /ha (Rebeca F1). Attack of soil born pathogens Verticillium dahliae and Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. melongenae started since the I decade of September. Verticillium dahliae attack was the lowest in cultivars: Belona, Black Beauty and Mirabelle F1 and the high attack was recorded on Luiza, Rebeca F1 and Epic F1.
