  In this study, the nutrient levels and phytate content of the leaves, fruits and stems of Corchorus olitorius were determined using standard analytic methods and the results were compared with those of cabbage (Brassica oleracea L.) and spinach (Spinacea oleracea L.). There was no significant difference in the crude protein contents between C. olitorius (16.3%) and spinach leaves (18.7%). There was no significant difference in the lipid contents of wild okra leaves, cabbage and spinach. The intra-nutritional contents of C. olitorius revealed that, its leaves showed superior nutritional quality when compared to the fruits and stems except the lipid content in which the fruits had the highest value. Corchorus olitorius had higher magnesium content than cabbage and spinach. Although, its phytate content was lower than that of spinach, the value was higher than that of cabbage. Generally, present findings revealed that the wild okra contained more nutritional qualities than cabbage and spinach.
