Annona muricata is a species of the genus Annona of the custard apple tree family, Annonaceae, which has edible fruit. The aim of this study was to carryout for check the Antibacterial, Antifungal and Phytochemical activity from methanolic and aqueous extract of leaf and fruit of Annona muricata. An antibacterial activity of Annona muricata was evaluated on Pathogenic bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella typhi, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Escherichia coli and Proteus mirabilis) by Well diffusion method. Antifungal activity of Annona muricata was evaluated on Cryptococcus neoformans and Candida albicans. Phytochemical analysis was done by using standard methods. Phytochemical screening was used to determine the presence of Alkaloids, Flavonoids, Carbohydrates, Glycosides, Proteins, Amino acids, Saponins, Tannins, Terpenoids in Methanolic and Aqueous extract of Annona muricata. These findings support the traditional use of Annona muricata in varies disorders.

Keywords: Annona muricata, Anti fungal,Anti bacterial, Phytochemical.
