green onion or scallion

im Supermarkt

These are the milder green onions with the small bulbs, which in many French supermarkets are confused with onions blancs or spring onions with larger round bulbs. No matter what they are called, they are next to impossible to find in January and February when you feel like making a Chinese dinner.
