The anther is the oval shaped sac on the male cannabis plant, sometimes referred to as the banana, that produces the pollen of flowering plants. About six anthers are typically found surrounding the center of a cannabis flower, and can be in various colors of light yellow or a deep red. The anther attracts pollinators like bees which disperse pollen to the female plants and the pistil for reproduction. Cannabis farmers will use the pollen from anthers to apply to female plants to cross two strains.
