Only scallion or green onion is correct, leek and chives are part of the same species, but are distinctly different.

Yes but scallions typically refer to plants that have been allowed to grow bulbs

whoa, get a load of mr. elitist coastie here. I bet you just said that because they're insanely obscure foods and you know nobody around here has had chives or leeks so we can't say anything about it

here in the real america we just call this stuff "mexican garlic" and it's only sold at weird immigrant and hipster stores

bought one once and it was really weird smelling. I threw it out before tasting it. definitely not worth it.

Well it's none of those, it's a

Although in some uncivilised places they're also called green onions or scallions. Leeks and chives are completely different things.

Leeks are a traditional part of the diets of peasants and poor folk in many parts of the world, particularly Europe. They aren't as widely cultivated in America, but you can still find them in the produce section in most grocery stores. Could you possibly be any worse at trolling?

It is a green onion/ scallion (name is geographically dependent, but refer to the same item) about 12-14 inches long and up to 1/2 inch wide. Very common in grocery stores across the United States.
Chives and leeks are a different species, but are also very common
Chives are very thin and moderately strong in flavor with a garlic/onion flavor.
Leeks are quite large (18-24 inches long and upto 1-1/2 inches in diameter) with a fairly mild flavor

Pic is chives, spring onions, green onions/scallions from left to right

Spring onions are known as salad onions or Cipollini onions also..

Snarelure

@Sharpcharm
They're spring onions. "Salad onions" seems to be a blanket term for any type of scallion or spring onion. Never heard of cipollini before, but they appear to be a different variety altogether, or more simply the Italian word for small onion, which I suppose could also apply to spring onions, as spring onions are simply small, early harvested onions.

Hard to tell from the small pic, but those appear to be scallions, not spring onions.

The spring onion is mislabled on this pic. That is a green onion/scallion. The spring onion has a narrow stalk see@kizzmybutt
in the center.

Correct. Scallions never develop a bulb. Spring onions do. They are from the same species though.
