Since the stigma surface provides the first point of contact for pollen grains, the initial pollen-pistil interaction takes place between these two structures. It is, therefore, important to understand the stucture of the stigma, as well as the style, in order to reveal the nature of pollen-pistil interaction. The aim of this study was to gather more information about interactions between pollen and pistil in Capsicum eximium A.T.Hunz Solanaceae by studying immature, mature unpollinated and mature pollinated styles. It was found that most features of the stigma and style of C. eximiumresembled those of other genera in the Solanaceae.
