This listing is for one (1) packet of 200 Common Chive seeds collected from our own plants.
Common chives are a must-have culinary and medicinal plant, best known for their mild onion flavor. The flowers and stems are used in all kinds of dishes, both raw and cooked.
Medicinal benefits are similar to those of garlic, although milder. Chives contain allicin, which releases nitric oxide, reducing stiffness in the blood vessels and decreasing blood pressure. Chives also contain quercetin, which may reduce the risk of plaque buildup in arteries. The high vitamin C content in chives can help prevent colds. They also speed recovery if a cold develops by helping the body to expel mucus; the sulfurous compounds in chives are natural expectorants.
