Chives (Allium schoenoprasum), a member of the onion family and native to Asia and Europe, have been around over 5,000 years. Yet, they were not actively cultivated until the Middle Ages. The botanical name is derived from the Greek meaning reed-like leek. The English name chive comes from the Latin cepa, meaning onion, which became cive in French. Prized for their flavor, this smallest member of the onion family has many wild cousins growing throughout the Northern hemisphere.

I'm new to the chive game... Are they good all year round? or is there an actual chive season?

Thanks!
