Leaves of seven accessions of Ocimum gratissinum collected from Nigeria was analyzed for proximate, minerals and phytochemical constituents with a view of ascertaining if there are variations in these accessions and if there are to determine the heritable and non-heritable components and estimate the heritability and genetic advance expected. All the determinants were carried out in triplicates. Analysis of variance showed that all the proximate, mineral, Vitamin C and Phytochemical were highly significant (P
