- Chives, Common
Ah, well, I don't think there is anything common about chives. For one thing, they have an ancient pedigree, dating back to perhaps 5000 years of cultivation. They were a mainstay in the Middle Ages, and the Romans valued chives for their medicinal purposes. Romanian Gypsies used chives in fortune telling. They are one of the essential ingredients in the "herbes fines" of France. They have myriad culinary uses and are super easy to grow. Just let chives grow in clumps and harvest the leaves as needed, or three times a year for major harvests. They are not fussy about soil and growing conditions, other than to prefer well-drained soil and sun. Hardy to Z3. Sun.

Allium tuberosum; Certified Organic

The leaves can be harvested regularly over the season, as are regular chives, and have an incredible, unique taste combination of both garlic and chives. A must-have for the garden and the kitchen!
