    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about food identification. Try cooking.stackexchange.com ? Aug 12, 2016 at 9:18

    @congusbongus: It is about food identification and Chinese vocabulary. Cooking.SE is about cooking and I have no question about cooking this mystery vegetable. Therefore it would be more off topic there. Even if they accepted the question they are unlikely to also know the Chinese word. Aug 12, 2016 at 9:20
  • Precedent. Zero votes but has an answer and has not been closed, even though it's asking for the English word rather than the Chinese word. Aug 12, 2016 at 9:23

    In English, it's called okra, ochro, or ladies' fingers.

It's called 秋葵 in Mainland China. So is it in Taiwan I guess.
