Most all of them. Except peas. Peas can go **** themselves. Not crazy about raw celery either. But seriously I don't think I've found any other vegetables that I refuse to eat prepared any way.

Would peas be fruit? Or are they a legume? HHHmmmm... now I don't know what they are. Beans are a legume. Peas are similar, but I'm not certain.

For me the problem with raw celery is the texture. All those stringy bits just freak me out. I'm fine with it chopped up and cooked in something.
Worst is when a string gets stuck in your throat. Almost gagging, hacking, doing whatever you can to get it either up or down.

I think you're right, I was just looking up squash (which I don't like, and is a fruit). From what I could tell, pea pods are a fruit but the peas themselves are a legume. According to botany, a fruit is the part of a plant that surrounds and delivers the seed. There is no botanical definition of a vegetable, they're just different parts of plants - stems, leaves, roots.

All this fruit hate. I'm just here for the love of the banana.

I've had like three bananas the the last 50 years. Banana bread is fine, but to peel and eat a raw banana, nope ain't gonna happen. I have to be in a serious potassium deficiency to eat one and then I can barely eat a half a one even plugging my nose so I don't have to smell it. I don't know if it is the texture, or smell but they make me want to throw up! (insert vomit emoji!!)

This is true. Has anyone eaten a pumpkin not turned into some sort of desert? That's maybe a sign that it just doesn't stand up on its own as a good fruit.
Thats a good point. Anything that has pumpkin in it also has a ton of cinnamon and nutmeg. Hell, pumpkin spice doesn't even have any actual pumpkin in it!

I eat two stalks of celery every week (with hummus and PB) and this never happens to me. Maybe you need to learn how to swallow better.
