Spring onion / Green Onion / Scallion

English Name: Spring onion / Green Onion / Scallion

Common Hindi Name: Hari Pyaz

  • Scallions or green onions or spring onions are very young onions, harvested before the bulb has had a chance to swell.
  • They have long, slender green tops and the small white bulb. Both are edible, and are good either raw or cooked. They are similar in flavor to onions, but are much milder.
  • Spring onions have larger more defined bulbs. Just like regular green onions, the bulbs of spring onions have a concentrated onion flavor and are often sold with their roots attached.
  • The scallions have a small tender white bulb at one end. From the bulb, dark green tubular sections extend vertically. Both the bulb and the tubular sections are usually tender and have a milder taste than other varieties of onions.
