The agar well method was used to evaluate the MIC (minimal/minimum inhibitory concentration), MBC values (minimum bactericidal concentration) and growth inhibition zone diameters of bacterial and fungal growth at different concentrations of the nutrient agar medium and potato dextrose agar, results were compared with Amoxicillin and Amikacin, a commercial antibacterial agent. Fruit juice of C.limon showed highest antibacterial activity followed by fruit juice of P.granatum variety. Fruite juice of C.reticulata and C.paradisi exhibited least antibacterial activity.
