Endophytes have a property of various enzymes production which work as Plant Growth Promoting Bacteria (PGPB) and are a good source of secondary metabolites with phytochemicals properties. The objective of this study was to identify the enzymatic properties of the endophytes which were isolated from various part of Citrus limon plant. A total of 27 bacterial endophytes were isolated with three Bacillus spp. gave best results and showed multivariant in enzymes production. It may be good for plant health and growth.
