Lipases are important enzymes because of their various applications in different industries. Fungal lipases are used in many industries like Vitamins, amino acids fermentation, organic salts. Lipases have their own pH different from acids. The present study is concerned with production of lipase from locally isolated Penicillium sp. from pickle. Lipase showed its maximum activity (98.7+0.42U/ml) with teramera at 10%(v/w) inoculums after 72h of fermentation at the temperature of 30oC by using tap water as moistening agent when pH was maintained at 9 with 10g of substrate and 1% ammonium sulphate used as nitrogen source
