Chinese Chives

A popular ingredient in Chinese cuisine

With a stronger flavor than Western Chives, Chinese chives are a popular ingredient in Chinese dumplings, soups and stir-fries. The Chinese chives are sometimes sold with their edible flower buds.

Yellow chives (Chinese: gau wong) are chives that are grown in the dark, similar to white asparagas, and are pale yellow in color.
