Rwanda chives (Allium schoenoprasum) refer to onion-family herbs with showy flowers which serve as culinary delights. The herb is available from across the globe including Eastern Africa, the Asian continent, southern Europe and North America. In appearance, this is a green onion look-alike. Just like scallions, it has a hollowed interior. It reaches a foot high and is topped by a signature flower. It is this bloom that makes pastes for spicing soups and meat salads in Western countries. In Rwanda, the crop grows in mainly Eastern Province. It is among the main ingredients of a chicken dish that the locals call peri peri. A global crop, the chive is native to the two hemispheres of the world.

We source Rwanda chives from the Eastern parts of the country, especially Bugesera district. We only draw contracts with family growers who have less than two acres of land. These small fields make it possible to manage the crop under organic terms including the use of sufficient farmyard manure. The farmers also keep the produce with low residual levels by minimizing the use of pesticides.
We harvest Rwanda chives when they have just gone to half their size at 6 inches. Our well-trained workers use sharp cutlery including snippers to cut the plants half an inch from the base. The little stump that is left on the ground is usually ready for regrowth in the next couple of weeks and hence harvestable in the coming season.
We sort the harvest of Rwanda chives by such parameters as size and healthy appearance. Our cartons weigh ½ bushels. Each bundle consists of about ten sheath-like leaves. It settles at the bottom of film-lined cartons or jute bags that preserve it against the vagaries of weather during transit. We keep the produce free of black rot disease by preserving the temperatures cool and stable. We finalize the packing process by sticking self-adhesive produce labels of the name, net weight, country of origin and the destination.
We store Rwanda chives at the low temperature of 0 degrees Celsius. The produce stays fresh for the next 14 days under these conditions. This is due to the well-hydrated packing and storage routines that prevent early wilting.
