The aim of this paper was to evaluated of some apricot genotypes grown in the Romanian North Eastern area conditions. During 2016-2018 studies were done at seven apricot cultivars (‘Mamaia’, ‘Ovidiu’, ‘Fortuna’, ‘Amiral’, ‘Goldrich’, ‘Traian’ and ‘Dacia’) which were in the experimental plot at RSFG Iaşi, Romania. Number of days and sum of the active temperature from swelling buds (51 BBCH stage) to the beginning of blooming (61 BBCH stage), trunk section area of the tree and also fruit’s weight were evaluated. Fruit weight of ‘Dacia’ registered 89.3 g but at ‘Amiral’ were 75.3 g as average for three years, but statistically there were no significant differences from the average. Regarding the period from the swelling of buds to blooming, the shortest period was of 10 days for the ‘Dacia’ and ‘Traian’ and the longest period was 14 days for the ‘Ovidiu’. The sum of the active temperatures above the biological limit has varied according to the climatic conditions of the studied years from 103°C to the ’Dacia’ and ‘Traian’ to 136°C for the ‘Ovidiu’.
