Allium schoenopraum

Onion-like flavor comes from the robust stems which are generally chopped finely and great to add to almost any savory dish; use in sour cream, cream cheese, soups, and on your morning eggs, etc. The light lavender flowers can be added to your favorite salad, just break the head apart. Grows 8-12".

100 seeds

Please note that germination rates for alliums (onions/shallots/chives/leeks) decline rapidly. We strongly encourage you to purchase new seed each growing season.

Great germination rate

I think every seed I planted sprouted! Haven’t tasted it yet, but can’t wait!

Germination was great

I just tasted one of these today, and they're really good! Much better than garlic chives.

Excellent

Germination was great, and these taste really nice, with mellow chive taste -- just like they should be. I am so excited about these!
