When harvesting the tree onion (Allium cepa proliferum), you don’t cut off the bulb, as you would with other onions; instead you pluck off its little bulblets. Originally from Southern Europe and Egypt, its green-blue stems, between 50 and 80 cm in height, are permanent and are somewhat reminiscent of chives.
