A pollen grain is a microscopic body that contains the male reproductive cell of a plant.


Pollen grains harbour the haploid microgametophytes of seed plants (spermatophytes) that deliver twin sperm cells to the female gametophyte via the pollen tube.

There are three main components of a pollen grain. The inside of the grain is made up of cytoplasm. This fluid medium houses the aforementioned living cells, keeping them moist and alive.
