Abstract:

In Romania, the species Hippophaë rhamnoides L. confirms the genetic variability of the genus Hippophaë and it highlights biotypes with fruits of various sizes, colors spreaded throughout the country. This study aimed some aspects of sea buckthorn cultivars and biotypes phenotypic variability collected from some districts of Moldova region. We targeted that each individual plant undergoing morphological observations to be different in terms of size, shape and color of the false fruit, in order to highlight significant differences between morphology and the area where the plant material was harvested. We analyzed the length, diameter and biomass of false fruit of Hippophaë rhamnoides L. and the values obtained were statistically interpreted. The average length of false fruits oscillated between 5,69 mm (Silvia cultivar) and 11,67 mm (Delta 60 M biotype), the average diameter of false fruits between 4,85 (Letea-2 biotype) and 9,64 mm (Ovidiu cultivar) and average biomass of 100 false fruits registered values between 14,50 g (Gheraiesti-3 biotype) and 44,50 g (Victoria cultivar).

Keywords:

Hippophaë rhamnoides L, , false fruits, average length, average diameter, average biomass.
