Similar to normal chives except that the leaves are flat and taper to a point and have a mild garlic flavour. Sometimes called perennial Chinese Chives or Chinese leeks, most probably in reference to their leaf blades that resemble miniature leek leaves. Small white coloured, globular flowers bloom over Summer and should be nipped off to promote foliage growth. Let a few flower heads go to seed and ripen. The shiny black seeds are a peppery delicacy when sprouted. Harvest blades by cutting all the way to the ground. The very small bulb is edible and can be used like a green onion. Will die back over Winter.
