Fumbwa or Mfumbwa (scientifically known as Gnetum africanum) is a popular variety of greens (edible vegetable leaves just like cassava leaves) found throughout tropical Africa -- literally "found" because it grows wild in the forest and is usually not cultivated. It is a natural "forest product" that is gathered by rural people and sold in markets in small and big cities. In English, Gnetum africanum is usually called "wild spinach" (though other plants are also called the same). But most of us are familiar with its various native name such as the Okazi or Afang leaf (in Nigeria), Eru or Okok (in Cameroon),  KoKo (in Angola, Gabon, Central African Republic) and m’fumbua (Mfumbwa) or Fumbua (Fumbwa) at the Democratic Republic of Congo.
