    Background: Banana is one of the valuable sources for maintaining human health. The use of fresh banana peel extracts for antimicrobial properties can be of great significance in therapeutic treatments. Objective: This study aimed to evaluate the antibacterial activity of both fresh and dried various banana peel extracts. Materials and Methods: Alcoholic extract of banana peel extracts was subjected to antibacterial efficacy against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria by the well agar diffusion method. Results: The alcoholic extract of fresh and dried banana peel showed a various inhibitory effect against various microbial isolates. Highest inhibitory effects were observed on Nendran and Poovan against Staphylococcus aureus (13.55 ± 0.04), Bacillus subtilis (13.26 ± 0.02), and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (14.5 ± 0.00). Conclusion: Alcoholic peel extracts of fresh and dried banana could be considered as a good antibacterial agent against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.
