Scallions / Spring Onions
Scallions (Allium cepa) – Also known as green onions and spring onions, scallion isn’t a species unto itself, but the immature form of several varieties of the common onion. Although they may be eaten cooked, scallions are prized for their potent flavour and are usually used raw. Both the green and white parts are edible, and the green foliage is much milder than the white bulb portion of the plant. They are an essential component of and garnish to many stir-fried dishes of Asia, and are equally at home in French and Mexican dishes.
