Scallions typically refer to any member of the Allium species with long green leaves and a root bulb that is small, either due to early harvest or cultivar characteristics. Scallions have a mild onion taste.
Scallions are a source of Vitamins A, C, K, and some B vitamins (particularly folate), as well as small amounts of manganese, iron, calcium and potassium. Scallion extracts have antioxidant and antibacterial effects.
Depending on location, the terms green onion, spring onion, and scallion may be used interchangeably.
