Chives are perennial herbs with slender, hollow leaves and delicate purple flowers. They belong to the onion family and possess a mild onion flavor. Chives are commonly used as a culinary herb, adding a subtle onion-like taste to salads, dips, soups, and sauces. They are also used as a garnish for various dishes due to their vibrant green color. Chives are easy to grow and make a lovely addition to herb gardens or as edging plants in flower beds. Their versatility and fresh flavour make them a popular choice among home cooks and garden enthusiasts.
