Plant-based phytochemicals are promising antibiotics for treating microbial illnesses in humans. The purpose of the current study is to assess the antibacterial properties of an aqueous Cucumis melo extract against Bacillus subtilis and Escherichia coli. The Agar well diffusion method is initially used to assess the antibacterial activity of the fruit's aqueous extract against the gram’s positive B. subtilis and the gram’s negative organism E. coli. Results reveal that, in comparison to the control, the Cucumis melo aqueous fruit extract at two dose levels of 200 µg/ml and 400µg/ml significantly increases the zone of inhibition of microorganisms. Additionally, a very large zone of inhibition was seen at 400µg/ml dosage. The difference between the mean values of 200 and 400µg/ml was also encouraging. The aqueous extract exhibits a considerable dose, in conclusion.
