    • Two medicinal plants, African Locust Bean (Parkia biglobosa) and Lonicera japonica, traditionally used in West Africa and China were investigated against four spoilage microorganisms: Bacillus subtilis, Cronobacter dublinensis, Pantoea agglomerans, and Bacillus sp., isolated from mulberry fruit. The aqueous extract of the P. biglobosa (ALB) was potent with average inhibitory zones against four spoilage microorganisms recorded as (Means ± SD) 6.5 to 19.5 mm as well as 6.5 to 15.5 mm for L.
