Chives are a member of the allium family and are a perennial plant that grows from a bulb. The leaves are 12 to 20 inches in length and resemble a hollow tube. The flowers produced by chives are distinctively star-shaped. The taste of chives is like that of a mild onion, and chives are very popular in French and Swedish cuisine.
