Talipariti elatum (Sw.) Fryxell is an endemic tree from Cuba, also known as “Majagua”, and has traditionally been used to improve asthmatic crisis and flu, as expectorant, appetitive, emollient, sudorific and laxative. Used as ornamental in park and avenues, its wood is used to make furnitures and baseball baths. In order to offer aspects related to the quality and effectiveness of the plant, its pharmacognostic, physicochemical, and phytochemical parameters of the fruits was realized. Moisture content (13.47%), alcohol extractive value at 95% (4.07%) and water extractive value (7.36%), total ash (3.58%), water soluble ash (0.70%) and acid insoluble ash value (1.56%) were tested for. Phytochemical screening revealed the possible presence of flavonoids, alkaloids, tannins, anthocyanidins, reductants sugars and astringents and/or bitter principles, and the absence of coumarins, saponins, quinones, cardiotonic glycosides and triterpens and/or steroids.
