What is this herb in my garden? Is it edible?
Yummy Chives or Allium schoenoprasum, type of onion. Definitely edible herb. The scapes and the unopened, immature flower buds are diced and used as an ingredient for fish, potatoes, soups, and other dishes.
The medicinal properties of chives are similar to those of garlic, but weaker. This herb also has mild stimulant, diuretic, and antiseptic properties.
it is interesting to know that Romanian Gypsies have used chives in fortune telling. It was also believed that bunches of dried chives hung around a house would ward off disease and evil. 🙂
