Managu, also known as African Nightshade, is one of the most important vegetables in Kenya. he leaves are eaten as a cooked vegetable, often mixed with other vegetables, and the fresh fruit is also consumed.

Managus are propagated from seeds.

  • The soil in the nursery should be loosened and enriched with decomposed manure.
  • Managu Seeds should be mixed with sand or ash for uniform sowing.
  • Sow the mixture thinly, either by broadcasting or in rows, 15 – 20 cm apart, and cover with a thin-fine layer of soil.
  • After sowing, the bed should be mulched with tall grass or similar material to retain moisture (Mulching is also important to prevent the seeds from splattering around when irrigating the bed especially during the rainy season). This mulch can be removed once the plants are 3 cm. Transplant when seedlings have 6 true leaves and are 10 – 15 cm tall. The spacing should be 20 cm in the row by 40 cm between the rows.
