Pearl onion

The "true" pearl onion (A. ampeloprasum var. sectivum or A. ampeloprasum 'Pearl-Onion Group'), (also known as 'button' or 'baby onions' in the UK, or 'creamers 'in the US, ) is a close relative of the leek (A. ampeloprasum var. porrum), and may be distinguished from common onions by having only a single storage leaf, similar to cloves of garlic. In French they are known as 'petit poireau antillais'.
