A. SCHOENOPRASUM Regular onion chives. Besides using the leaves, try the pretty purple flowers, separated into florets, in salads for colour and flavor. The most delicate member of the onion family. Chopped leaves offer great improvement to salads, soups, vegetables, omelettes, and cheese dishes. Essential kitchen herb! Palatable as it is to humans, nasty insects stay away in droves from it and neighbouring plants.
