Scientometric is defined as a technique for analysing and calculating different parameters which specify researcher's quantitative research output. This study examines scientometric analysis on Annona muricata (medicinal plant) by measuring and analysing the distribution of articles, year-wise, annual growth rate, authorship pattern, author productivity, relative growth rates, doubling time, degree of collaboration, ranked list of authors, and distribution of publications output. In this period of 31 years only 1236 publications were found. Publication of research in this field is not so much productive and only we have found that a maximum of 159 publications were published in 2020. Most prolific author is Hocquemiller, R. and at 1st rank in this field of Annona medicate. Brazil is at top position by publishing 269 publications followed by India (136). Universiti Putra Malaysia has taken lead by publishing 39 research papers. Conselho Nacional de Desenvolvimento Cientafico e Tecnola³gico funded 39 research publications only and at top position. 1194 publication are published in English language only. After analysing above parameters it has been concluded that research work on this field, in this long span is very less and therefore a huge research gap is found.
