The present study was carried out during growing season ، 2006 from ( 5 /3 ـ 25 /5 ) in a private orchard in Abe ـ Al ـ Khaseeb region ـ Basrah Govern . It is anatomical study for the flowers and fruits of Cordia myxa L .
The results showed that the development of embryo started immediately after Pollination ، one room formed in the ovary of flowers and in the medium of ovule ، the ovary growing in some of flowers and not in the other ، and the differences between them in style and volume was evident from the first week after Pollination ، Phenomenon (Tundary) was found in the flowers and they aborted through the development of embryo ، this Phenomenon happened in tow stages ; the first stage of fadeaway occur in ( 6 ـ 10 ) week after fruit set ، Disintegrate and fade away was happened gradually in the embryo sac ، as well as the full concealed of embryo was happened in finally fade away stage and the fruit contain the seed only without embryo .
The second stage of fadeaway occur in the finally of seed growth (about 10 week after fruit set) ، One of the tow seed stone was concealed ، and this type of fade away appear to be a normal development of seed ، Some time the fade away take place in both of stone in the finally stage of seed development ، and these seeds unable to germinate .
