History of onions
Similar to garlic, the history of onions is widely disputed due to the nature of the crop and the lack of trace evidence it leaves behind. However, many archaeologists, botanists and food historians do agree on the fact that onions have more than likely been cultivated for around 5,000 years.
It is believed that our predecessors discovered and started eating wild onions long before farming was even invented, as references of onion as food were found in the Bible and Kuran.
