The chromosome counts of Ilex paraguariensis St. Hil. confirmed the number 2n=40 for all the material studied. In the analysis of the meiosis it was proved that it has a normal behaviour, presenting 20 II. In the pollen analyzed about 100% of fertility was found. It was established that the embryo sac is of the Polygonum type. When the fruit is ripe, the embryos are in different stages: globular 2,6%; heart 70,24%; post heart 23,3%; torpedo 2,62% and mature 0,96% . These embryos continue growing when the seed is on conditions to germinate, this is the reason of the slow development observed in the germination.
