    Aim: Lagenaria siceraria (Molina) Standl. is commonly known as doodhi, fruits of which are used as vegetable all over India. The fruits are traditionally valued for its benefits as cardioprotective, cardiotonic, general tonic, diuretic, alternative purgative, and for cooling effects. The current study was, therefore, carried out to provide requisite pharmacognostic details about the fruit of L. siceraria (Molina) Standl. Material and Methods: Pharmacognostic evaluation included examination of macroscopical and microscopical characters, physicochemical properties, phytochemical analysis, fluorescence study, and high-performance thin-layer chromatography (HPTLC) fingerprint profile. Results and Discussion: The powder microscopy showed the presence of sclerenchymatous cells, xylem vessels with spiral thickening, rind of fruit, fibers, and starch grains. Phytochemical screening showed the presence of glycosides, steroidal compounds, flavonoids, and saponins. Qualitative densitometric HPTLC fingerprint profile of methanolic extract can provide standard fingerprints and can be used as a reference for the identification and quality control of the fruit. Conclusion: The present study will provide the information with respect to identification and authentication of L. siceraria (Molina) Standl. fruits.
