Okay on #s 1 & 7. Was #8 ten years already. Wow!
T or C not so sure. I said true, so I looked below. Now I'm really confused! LOL!


Source #1: A scallion, also commonly known as spring onion, green onion, or salad onion, is associated with various members of the genus Allium that lack a fully-developed bulb. Harvested for its taste, they tend to be milder than other onions and may be steamed or set in salads in western cookery and cooked in many Asian recipes. Diced scallions are often used in soup, noodle and seafood dishes, and in sauces in eastern dishes, after removing the bottom quarter-inch or so of the root end.

Source #2: We Aussies call them shallots, others call them green onions, or scallions, or spring onions, or onion shoots, or breath destroyers… a shallot by any other name would taste as sharp!

I've never heard "shallots" and "scallions" used interchangeably. Interesting.
