    Funny, because I grew up calling them scallions. Green onions,
    I only started hearing that on cooking shows.

    Green onions are the top green portions (soft stems) of onions, not
    the traditional root. I don't think green onions produce the large
    root bulb. I do think it's a different species. If wrong, I will be
    corrected swiftly here. heheh

    Home grown and farmers market green onions tend to have a much larger
    bulb end than what you usually see in grocery stores. Shoppers seem to
    prefer them to all be roughly the same size and shape.

    We have all those too. Sometimes our spring onions (or syboes) have the
    very thin bulb and some the thicker bulb, but they all seem to be called the
    same thing. I use shallots if I want a milder onion or to pickle.

    I don't understand what you are saying. Are you suggesting that you
    use only the dark green portion of the growth? You should be using
    everything right down to the hairy attached root.
