Abstract

Mahlep (Prunus mahaleb L.) is a taxon of Rosaceae, which grows in the winter edges are threaded, the lower faces have feathers along the main vein. Fragrant flowers are white in color. When small or 5 -6 mm fruit is ripe, it gets a black color. It is used as the leading tree in the forestation of arid areas on the forest-step border.

During flowering periods, pollens were determined by Wodehouse, Erdtman and SEM methods and they were studied in Light and Scanning Electron Microscopes. Pollen tricolporate, spheroid, exine tectate-striate. P. mahaleb is the reflection of people who are shaded under the park and gardens with its beautiful smell, but with a black and sticky state around it, it creates an undesirable view of the street
