Onion is one of the first plants that man cultivated. The onion was known in ancient China and in ancient Egypt for many thousands of years. It was also known in ancient Greece as spicy.

We find reports that the Egyptians gave onions to the workers who worked in the pyramids; the Israelites ate them when they were in the desert after leaving Egypt, and Alexander the Great gave them to his soldiers. It is today, as in the past, the scent with the more versatile and numerous uses.
