The development of the winter pea crop represents a major challenge to expand plant protein production in temperate areas. Breeding winter cultivars requires the combination of freezing tolerance as well as high seed productivity and quality. In this paper we present data obtained from the F3 and F4 lines of winter peas from the four hybrid combinations (Specter/F95-927; F98-492/Windham; F95-927/CHECO; Specter/CHECO) obtained in theNARDIFundulea. A number of 121 lines (81 F3 lines and 40 F4 lines descendants from F3) selected from winter/winter and winter/spring crosses pea genotypes, have been tested in two years 2015 and 2016 in the field of NARDI Fundulea. At these lines were determined winter hardiness, earliness, yield and plant height comparing with the winter peas control (Specter, Checo and Windham). The results of this preliminary study suggested that it is possible in the breeding of winter peas to realize, in the same time, a genetic progress for high yield, good level of winter hardiness, plant height and earliness.
