Are scallions the same things as green onions?
Scallions and green onions are literally the same thing. Spring onions, on the other hand, are a different thing. The bulb of a spring onion is much larger, compared to the small, not-so-bulbous scallion. ... Most scallions (and green onions) never grow true bulbs.
Green onions and scallions are actually the same thing! They are either harvested very young from the regular bulb-forming onions we are familiar with, or they can come from other varieties that actually never form bulbs.
Yes, the terms can generally be used interchangeably, although sometimes people consider the larger sized scallions green onions.
