Abstract

Wild pomegranate has been widely used in traditional medicinal system. The present study was based on analyzing antibacterial activity of the methanol extract of peel and pulp of wild pomegranate collected from five different places against four bacterial strains. Highest antibacterial activity was observed from the fruit peel collected from Buddhal region against B. subtilis strain and C. jejuni strains while highest antibacterial activity was observed in the fruit pulp collected from Buddhal and Udhampur region. As compared to fruit pulp highest antibacterial activity was observed in fruit peel as it is rich in secondary metabolites. Thus wild pomegranate plant extracts can be used as a natural alternative against antibiotics.
