Garlic Chives

Garlic Chives

80 to 90 days for leaf, 150 to 170 days for seed stems.  Thin flat wide leaves with a delicate garlic flavor are used to add that hint of garlic to sauces, dips, salads, cream soups and cooked vegetables.  Seed stems (budded flower stalks) are also harvested and used in oriental dishes (called “gow choy”).  Plants grow up to 12” tall and produce attractive white flowers.  Chives are perennial.
