Scallions, green onions and spring onions are all the same and it's known by different names based on the time they grow before being harvested. Scallions have the thinnest stem and there is no visible bulb at the end. On the other hand, spring onions have thick stems and have big white bulbs at the end. Green onions are somewhere in between scallions and spring onions and have very little bulb.
