Common Chive Seed

This item is out of stock.

Supplies are limited so make sure you don't miss out next time by having us automatically notify you when it becomes available again.



Mild onion-y herb for a go-to flavor kick. Chives complement any savory dish; they add a bright finish, either raw or cooked. Chives are a bit more elegant than chopped scallion tops for garnishes and have a more refined flavor. Lavender pom-pom flowers are beautiful in the garden ,and are also highly edible. Keep seeds consistently moist until germination and harvest young to avoid woodiness. Frost-hardy. Perennial. Photo courtesy of Baker Creek Heirloom Seed.
