Unruly purple bunching onions with extremely regimented white onions behind them.

Bunching onions can also be called scallions, spring onions, green onions and they can be immature regular onions or specific varieties that do not bulb up. It’s the bulbing, or lack thereof, that sets these onions apart.

They have a milder flavor than other onions, with the mildest part being the very bottom by the roots and the hottest part the tips of their long green leaves. If you don’t like hot onions stick with the main stem of these onions and trim the leaves to within an inch or so of where they start to spread out.
