Chives Garlic New Belt

  • Botanical Name: Allium tuberosum

Chinese Chives, Gow Choy (Chinese) or Nira (Japanese). An attractive perennial closely related to common Chives but with a mild garlic, rather than onion flavour. The blossom is a flat headed spray of star-shaped flowers that faintly smell of roses, so if grown indoors on a sunny windowsill they perfume your kitchen and can be as pretty as any flowering houseplant. The wide leaves are flat, solid, and dark green. The plant grows into a clump, instead of a single bulb, and forms many tubers on a horizontal rootstock. Chinese herbalists recommend this species of Allium for the treatment of various ailments.

Maturity 90 days from direct sowing.
