About This Food

Description

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.

Selecting & Storing

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