The experiments were set in unheated plastic houses during the period 2009-2010. The effect of the short and long pruning of the first-order offshoots was tested on the Bulgarian salad cultivar Gergana. It was established that the pinching of the vegetation top of the offshoots after the formation of 2-3 leaves provoked the highest day-growth of the leaf surface and the formation of the highest number of female flowers. When applying the same variant the higest rate of fruit-formation was observed.
