The aim of this research was to evaluate phytochemical profiles and total antioxidant activity of different fruits viz. Annona reticulata, Vitis vinifera, Punica granatum, Citrus sinensis, Citrullus lanatus and Musa cavendishii. DPPH free radical scavenging activity, reducing power assay, Total phenolic content, Flavonoid content and Tannin content were determined by Spectrophotometric methods. Among six fruits Annona reticulata showed highest activity in all the assays compared to other fruits. The fruit extract of Musa cavendishii was showed lowest activity in DPPH free radical scavenging activity, Reducing power capacity and Total phenolic content assays.
