About Chives Seeds - Garlic

Allium tuberosum

Seed Type Heirloom Seed

Also known as Chinese chives, garlic chives (Allium tuberosum), can be used the way you use regular chives. They are distinguishable from chives by their flat, broader leaves and fragrant white flowers.

As the name indicates, garlic chives have a delicate garlic flavor and are used extensively in oriental dishes. Garlic chives are a good choice for those who shy away from full-flavored garlic.
