Garlic Chives ECO

Allium tuberosum

An exciting herb seasoning similar to chives but with a light and fresh garlic flavor. Fantastic in cooking, as a topping or in salads. Unlike the classic chives, Chinese chives have flatter and coarser leaves. The taste is very similar to the classic chives but leans more towards garlic. The variety produces white fairy-tale-like flowers that work great as a lure for all our pollinators. Besides being beautiful to behold, the flowers are also edible and taste great on sandwiches, in salads, or as a garnish. Imagine a summer toast Skagen topped with white flowers from Chinese chives, magical!

Chinese chives are also a nutritious herb that is incredibly rich in many minerals such as iodine, iron, and calcium. It also contains vitamins A and C, as well as a relatively high fiber content.

This variety is also organic and works great for hydroponics year-round with the help of some plant lighting.
