Product Description

These chives truly are gigantic! When planted in full sunlight or partial shade, they'll grow up to 24" tall, with large, white edible flower heads that form loose globes atop the long, deep green, elegant stems. A true culinary favorite, its pleasant flavor combines chives and mild garlic in a larger size. Chop them up into small pieces and sprinkle on baked or loaded potatoes, soups, stews, salads--even eggs and breakfast dishes. Anything that needs a pop of color and delicious flavor. Once harvested, place in our Herb Keeper so they'll last weeks more! Perennial. Zones 4-8. 90 days to maturity.
