Allium schoenprasum

Chives
  • Chive is an herb in the One Earth Edibles line.
  • Chive is tolerant of many soils, preferring full sun and moisture.

A handy ingredient for French, Chinese and many other cuisines, with a delicate onion flavor. A swath of thin green leaves topped with edible pink-purple blossoms add texture to the herb garden landscape.

Interesting Notes:

Good companion plant for tomatoes and carrots to keep the pests at bay.
