Chives grow in grass-like bunches but have round, hollow leaves. They resemble miniature green onions in appearance, flavor, and texture, with a mild savory bite. A traditional garnish on potato dishes, they’re also great in salads and surprisingly rich in vitamins and minerals! If left to seed, they produce striking tufts of small pinkish-purple flowers. Chives are perennial and with consistent harvesting can grow for many seasons.
