The onion (Allium cepa), also known as the bulb onion, and common onion is the most widely cultivated species of the genus Allium. The genus Allium also contains a number of other species variously referred to as onions and cultivated for food, such as the Japanese bunching onion (A. fistulosum), Egyptian onion (A. ×proliferum), and Canada onion (A. canadense). The name “wild onion” is applied to a number of Allium species. Onions can be used in almost every type of food, including cooked foods and fresh salads and as a spicy garnish. The whole plant is edible and is used as food in some form or another.
