Onions, Scallions

About This Food

Scallions refer to several members of the onion family which have not fully matured into a bulb.

Varieties of scallions include "scallion", green onions and young leeks. Each has a white base and long, green straight leaves. All scallion varieties can be used interchangeably.

The green tops of scallions, provide more beta-carotene, vitamin C, folate, and calcium, ounce for ounce, than full grown onions.

Choose scallions with bright green straight leaves and crisp white bases. Store in the crisper of the refrigerator for up to one week.
