Scallions are a variety of young onion also referred to as green onions.  We grow both white and purple bunching varieties.Scallions have a sweeter, milder flavour than mature onions and are a bit stronger than chives.  The white part has more flavour than the green leaves.  Try scallions thinly sliced in salads, soups, stews, and casseroles.
