Wordsmith.org Forums General Topics Q&A about words gumbo = okra
>>gumbo and okra - the words are cognates<<
The link you provided gives the following definition:
"...another name for okra; also applied in the W United States to a rich, black, alkaline alluvial soil, which is soapy or sticky when wet."
Is that why so many people think it is so yucky?
Anyone for some soup?
