History of the Onion
Onions have been cultivated and

since then, the onion has been widely used around the world, including
in Europe, China, India, Russia, Turkey, and of course the North Amercia
(Supposedly, Christopher Columbus brought this popular vegetable to the
New World on his second voyage here).

The Onion Plant
The onion plants, Allium cepa,
are a member of the Alliaceae, or onion family. Until recently, onion
where classified as members of the lily family along with many flowering
plants and asparagus. Now, onions along with garlic, leeks, shallots,
and chives have their own family, Alliaceae. Onions are the underground
bulbs of the onion plant; they are composed of thin layers of flesh.
The onion bulbs are used by the plants to store energy over the first
season for use in the second season to produce flowers and then seed.
This kind of growing cycle makes onions biennials, or plants that grow
for two seasons and then die.
The onion plant's leaves look more like a cluster of stalks than true
leaves. They are long, hollow, cylindrical leaves that can stand a few
feet high. These leaves are eatable and sold when young as green onions
