Does someone know if (fresh) Okra is considered a vegetable or a legume ?
It's a vegetable. The flesh is the food part, and the seeds are just swallowed because it's easier than removing them. So it's not kitniyot.
Thanks to all

Botanically, it's not a legume, but neither is corn or rice. ('Vegetable' isn't really a botanical category.) I do not believe that it's considered kitniyot.
It doesn't puff up!
I'd say go for it, I've never heard it included in the problem list (& I just re-read that section in Blumenkranz)
