Details

Chives are a species of flowering plant that produces edible leaves and flowers. Their close relatives include the common onions, garlic, shallot, leek, scallion, and Chinese onion.

A perennial plant is widespread across much of Europe, Asia, and North America. Chives have insect-repelling properties that can be used in gardens to control pests.

 

Culinary Uses

Chive’s green stalks and flower buds are diced and used as an ingredient for omelets, fish, potatoes, soups, and many other dishes. In addition, edible flowers can be used in salads.
