Onion flower

I have a good crop of onions (about 100) that need harvesting! I can’t eat raw onions but I like them baked or otherwise cooked… I didn’t know they would have white pompoms like this, but I should have guessed, since Chives have purple pompoms and they are closely related.

    I’ve heard you can eat the onion flowers raw or cooked also!

      My onion crop was a failure (ground too poor) but it made some nice flowers anyway πŸ™‚ Chives are similar to onions, easy to grow…with purple flowers that not only look pretty but make a unique addition to salads! The greens are very much like green onions πŸ˜‰
