Cipolline, cipollotto and cipolla all refer to onions. Cipollina (-ine  
for plural) refers to scallions which come in round and flat forms.

Muscari ARE apparently grown for culinary purposes in southern Italy  
where it is called Lapascione, lampagione or lampasciuolo. They are  
usually eaten in summer when they ripen (and are not as bitter) or are  
pickled or boiled with olive oil and vinegar.
