We are sometimes lost : cive, ciboule, cebette ... according to the regions, the appellations diverge. Cive was used to describe, sometimes the ciboule, sometimes the chives. Properly occupying a place of choice among condimental plants, the cebette belongs to the family of alliaceae, such as garlic, onion and shallot. Unlike onion, the cebette does not really form a bulb, but only a slight bulge in the shape of a pear that merges with the start of the stems. Originally from East Asia, it was introduced in Europe at the end of the Middle Ages and has been used for more than 3,000 years. Sung by Homer, it is quoted in the Bible ... Side flavor, the cebette reminiscent of onion (part white or red, depending on the variety) but more delicate or chives (green part).
