Abstract

The tea plant [Camellia sinensis (L.) O. Kuntze] has been cultivated in Vietnam for a long time. In past years, significant efforts were spent on tea breeding and correspondingly meaningful achievements were obtained. Some new tea cultivars of high yield and good quality, suitable for production of green, black and Oolong teas such as LDP 1, LDP 2, PH 8, PH 9, have been developed. Tea breeding, however, needs to be further strengthened, and to this end the following activities need to be promoted: collecting and conservation of tea genetic resources, hybridization of native and exotic cultivars of C. Sinensis and C. Sinensis var. assamica, and use of mutation for speeding up the breeding cycle.
