Its name derives from Greek skhoinos and pràson and these mean respectively "sedge" and "leek". The Latin name allium includes all the members of oniun genus, which send up hot vapors from a sulfur-rich oil. Native plant of the Eastern Hemisphere, chives was probably first used by the Chinese and later the ancient Greeks. By the sixteenth century, the aromatic plant earned a place in the European herb gardens and was brought to America for food and medical purposes.
This aromatic edible herb is widely used for its mild onion flavor. Chives' leaves are often chopped and used as seasoning and garnish on baked potatoes, creamy cheese and butter, omelets, salads and cream soups.
