History and Folklore
The origin of the name "onion" comes from the classical period when it was given the Latin name unio that means oneness or unity, or a kind of single onion. The French call it oignon. Martin Elcort in his book The Secret Life of Food writes, "The word (onion) was created by adding the onion-shaped letter o to the word union, yielding a new spelling ounion. The letter u was later dropped to create the modern spelling. A union is something that is indivisible and which, if taken apart, is destroyed in the process, like an onion." Eaten and cultivated since prehistoric times, onions were mentioned in first dynasty of ancient Egypt, circa 3200 BCE, and have appeared in tomb paintings, inscriptions and documents from that time on. Some paintings depict onions heaped onto banquet tables, both the robust bulb onions as well as scallions.
Growth and Habitat
Wild Onion grows from an ovoid shaped bulb and finer fibrous roots. Bulbs are usually clustered in groups of 1 to 5+. Both the leaves and the bulb are considered edible, but much stronger of flavor than garden onions. The flowers produce a 3-chambered seed capsule, not bulblets. The capsule elongates and eventually exposes three roundish black seeds that can have a dull surface. These are usually wind dispersed.
