Allium tuberosum

Chinese chives taste like sweet, mild garlic, and are also called garlic chives, oriental garlic, chinese leek and gow choy. Unlike common chives they have flat leaves and white blossoms.

Easy-to-grow, perennial herb with a very nice aroma. The leaves are used fresh in salads, for herring, egg dishes, new potatoes etc. They can also be frozen for winter use.

Don't let the plant flower abundantly as it takes energy from other growth, but with that said - allowing some flowers for harvest (buds and flowers from onions, garlic and chives are called scapes) make a beautiful and tasty garnish! Thrives on loamy calcareous soil, preferably clay soil, but unpretentious.
