What is an Eschalot in Australia?

They grow from a bulb rather than seed and form clumps, much the same as garlic, though typically only two or three large cloves a clump. In European and American recipes the eschalot is simply referred to as a shallot or scallion, while the word shallot in Australia is also used for the green, sprouting spring onion.

Is a green onion a spring onion?

Also known as scallions or green onions, spring onions are in fact very young onions, harvested before the bulb has had a chance to swell. Both the long, slender green tops and the small white bulb are edible, and are good either raw or cooked. They have a similar flavour to onions, but are much milder.
