Known for their slightly deintensified onion taste and strong aroma, the green onion is a very versatile onion. While many refer to the green onion as a scallion, they actually have a small white bulb, unlike a scallion, and are slightly bigger than the scallion as well.


The green onion is pulled from the ground before its bulb is fully mature. The bulb is white in color while its stalk, which is equally edible, intensifies from light green to dark as you move further away from the bulb.


Sometimes prepared raw but also common in stir-fries as well as some salsas and dips, green onions are another delicious and nutritious veggie.
