Non-GMO, Heirloom Chives Herb Garden Seed from True Leaf Market. Allium schoenoprasum. Chives are native to regions in Asia and Europe. This Chive cultivar is common in the U.S. and is a different type than its relative Chinese Chive variety, which is also called "Garlic Chive." Among the many vitamins chives provide, they also contain choline"a calming nutrient that helps with sleep. As one of the prolific "fines herbes" of cooking, chives are easy to grow from seed during the cool season, but also do well in temperate climates as hardy perennial herbs.
Non-GMO (Allium schoenoprasum) Chive plants grow as upright hardy perennial herbs which thrive during the cooler seasons of spring or fall. Onion Chive varieties grow from bulbs and reach up to 1" tall, developing long, skinny tube-shaped shoots that are green and grass-like. During late spring or once they've grown 6" long, your chive herbs will give off a mild spice and produce light-fuschia colored flowers that also provide a slight onion flavor. Your cool-season chives will be ready for harvest before the edible flowers begin to bow over as the warmer temperatures set in, before going to seed.
The Culinary Benefits of Chives Herb Garden Seed
As Chives are one of the prolific "fines herbes" of cooking, it's often used as a fresh garnish. Whether it's a baked potato, eggs of many varieties or to enhance a warm soup, chives are one of the few herbs that provide a mild onion flavor that isn't too overwhelming and compliments many dishes. Aside from being used as a garnish, you can also make chive butter, pesto, or even into a dressing! Use the fuschia-colored flower heads to add to a salad or lightly sauteed with a French omelet.
The Non-Culinary Benefits of Growing Chives Herb Garden Seed
You can use Chives as a decorative garden border or landscape filler, as these verdant and aromatic herbs make a lovely ground cover. The light-fuchsia-colored flower buds are also dainty ornamental herbs that attract beneficial pollinators. Plant your Chives as a companion herb near vegetables such as tomatoes, carrots, broccoli, peppers, or potatoes to help enhance their flavor and development!
