The research was conducted in 5 (five) Regencies. The research conducted by interview to the breeder, user farmers, and seeds seller. The research results showed that potential horticultural seeds in five Regencies based on LQ and local government program are rose apple (Syzygium aqueum), longan fruit, durian, ginger, bird’s eye chili or thai chili, orange, potato, and mango. All potential commodities above were feasible to be developed based on R/C ratio, B/C ratio, NPV, and IRR calculation. Marketing chain for those potential commodities vary started from breeder farmer, middleman, farmer group, Regional Owned Enterprises to the user farmer or individual farmer. The prospect of those potential horticultural seeds breeding based on AHP analysis results some attributes to be considered, they are seeds quality and growth capability.
