Allium schoenoprasum

Interestingly, Allium schoenoprasum is the only Allium species native to both New and Old Worlds.  In Europe, they have been cultivated since the Middle Ages, although their usage dates back thousands of years.

As a culinary herb, its scrapes (stems) and the unopened, immature flower buds are diced and used as a flavoring ingredient in soups, fish, and potato recipes.  Chives are commonly available in grocery stores and should be a common plant in everyone's kitchen garden.  They are
probably best known for their use as a garnish, along with butter and sour cream, on baked potatoes. Can be used fresh or dried. See also Garlic Chives.

Chives reportedly possess insect-repelling properties that can be used in your garden to deter pests.

Long-lived and hardy perennial.  Each packet contains 0.5 gram, which is approximately 440 seeds.
