The developments of the winter pea crop represent a major challenge to expand plant protein production in temperate areas. Breeding winter cultivars requires the combination of freezing tolerance as well as with high seed yield and quality. In this paper we present data obtained from the F3, F4 and F5 lines of winter peas selected from the four hybrid populations (Specter/F95-927; F98-492/Windham; F95-927/CHECO; Specter/CHECO) and tested at NARDI Fundulea in the year 2017. At these lines were determined winter hardiness, earliness, yield and plant height in comparation with the three winter peas controls (Specter, Checo and Windham). The results shown that several news F5 lines of winter peasrealized till 6.5 t / ha, exceeding the control varieties and had similar to or better earliness and winter hardiness than that of the parental forms.
