Scallions vs. green onions

What is the difference between scallions and green onions? Are you supposed to use a different part of the plant (top greens only) or is it the size of the onion that makes the dif. SB diet uses either term in their recipes and I'm confused.

It depends on what part of the county or world you are in. By me they are considered the same thing.

same thing here too, scallions are considered the same as green onions. but my neighbors grow an onion that is half way between scallion, which they call spring onions, and regular onions. it looks like a fat bulbed scallion, a little smaller than a golf ball, which they call a green onion.
for scallions, depending on the dish you can use all of it, or just the white part. sometimes the green part can be a little bitter, in which case you may not want to eat it. otherwise, i always use the whole scallion.

btw, if you get the chance, buy or make scallion kimchi. it rocks!!!

lol Kimchee is an acquired taste! My BIL used to call his daughter "Kimchee" when they lived in Korea - I was told the literal translation is "rotten cabbage"!

Whoa... so scallion is the same thing as green onion?
I thought it was this thing...



I just assumed so because it is "scalogno" in Italian and the dictionary also says scalogno=scallion...
They are much smaller than onion, but has more intense flavour, with a touch of garlicky taste to it... what do you call this in English??

As for scallion/green onion...I've always labelled the white the "green onion" and the green part the "scallion"
