I've never tried okra or kale so I dont know about those, but I dont liked cooked spinach (fresh is good), nor do I like fennel because it tastes like black licorice which I hate, and I also dont like radishes, and not a huge fan of cauliflower.

Barbara, you would know it as rutabaga. Here's more from Wikipedia:

In that order.

Guess I'm not all alone! Okra is probably the only vegetable I dislike.

The poll was interesting to see that most people do not like Okra including myself.

I love them all except celery, especially when raw. I love okra, is it because it's slimy that people don't like it?
