Abstract

Data are presented on the nutritive composition of leaves of Hibiscus manihot (Abelmoschus manihot), a major green leafy vegetable in Pacific diets. Samples obtained from three locations were analysed at three laboratories (one in Fiji and two in Papua New Guinea). Differences in the values obtained are attributed to various factors, including differences in the composite mixture of cultivars analysed at each laboratory and differences in soil and climate conditions across the three source locations.
