Abstract– Pollen morphology is a disciplinary area with the primary objective to describe the pollen grains by their characteristics that also defines different plant groups. On the other hand, pollen fertility indicates the pollen viability. This present work deals with study of pollen morphology and pollen fertility on two varieties of each, of Foeniculum vulgare Mill. and Anethum graveolens L.A. sowa., two very important economical crops belong to the family Apiaceae. The investigation was carried out under the light microscope with the aid of oculo-micrometre and stage micrometre.
