In the present investigation, aqueous extract, and ethanolic extract of the fruits were made using hot extraction procedure using soxhlet apparatus, decoction, maceration through present study which will assist in the identification of fresh as well as dried crude samples of fruits anatomically and physicochemical. TLC finger printing and fluorescence analysis of powdered fruits has been conducted and reported.
