Bunch is made up of three chives. The chive, whose scientific name is allium fistulosum, belongs to the same family of garlic, onion, leek, shallot and chives (Allium or Liliaceas species). Depending on the place, it can be known by other names, for example green onion, Chinese onion, long onion, green onion or branch onion. Chives look very similar to chives, but differ in the size of their bulb. The stems are long and firm; the green leaves are erect, hollow and tubular, but this plant does develop an elongated white bulb, although it never reaches the size and normal shape of an onion. Its flavor is very similar to that of other Allium species, possibly an intermediate combination between onion and chives. In other words, its flavor is not as powerful as that of onion, but not as smooth as that of chives. All its parts are edible and can be used interchangeably in the kitchen, however the flavor of the white base (bulb) is slightly more intense than that of the leaves.
