  Onion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Onions (usually but not exclusively the bulbs) are edible with a distinctive strong flavour and pungent odour which is mellowed and sweetened by cooking.
Onions can be used, usually chopped or sliced, in almost every type of food, including cooked foods and fresh salads, and as a spicy garnish; they are rarely eaten on their own but usually act as accompaniment to the main course.
In the English vernacular, "an onion" is a difficult situation, the use stemming from the onion's tendancy to irritate or inflame the eyes.
