A vegetable plant, similar to an onion with a small bulb and edible leaves.

Spring onions are long and thin, their taste is sweet and very mild so they can be eaten raw or cooked in a great variety of dishes.

Aspect

They are bright white with green stems. They are usually sold in bunches.

Taste

They have a mild taste. Their texture is juicy and crunchy at the same time. The green stem can be used to accentuate taste as done with fresh chive or parsley.

Buying and preservation tips

The best time for spring onions is from the end of spring to the end of summer, which is when they are recently picked and their taste is at its best. The white part must be firm and shiny, without moisture or viscosity. The stem must be robust and withering bunches must be avoided. They should not be preserved in plastic bags as their high moisture content makes them rot very easily.
