Salad Onions for Flavor and Health

Known as scallions, green onions, or spring onions, those green tops are worth having. They are among the easiest of vegetables to grow and do well in containers. Varieties that don’t form large bulbs are perennial and can be harvested often as long as the small bulb is not uprooted. For garden to table flavor, salad onions deserve a spot in a kitchen garden.

They are hardy and available for cutting in all but the coldest months. Normally, pests and diseases are not a problem. Green onions provide nutrients: Folic acid, vitamins A and K, as well as anti-oxidants are among their benefits.

In addition to leafy green salads they go well with bean salads, potatoes, and soups. Growing salad onions can be an easy DIY garden to table treat.
