Onions and Garlic
Why do you think the bulb of the onion plant is so big?
Because many thousands of years of cultivation and selection and cross-breeding by humans have made it so. Many plants grown by farmers would not survive if we quit taking care of them.

What are scallions?
True scallions don't form bulbs. They stay straight. Green onion are the immature sprouts or "spring onions" - before the bulb begins to develop from the onion "sets" which is what onion "seeds" are called. You'll often see them in markets with a bulb that has begun to form which would grow into a big onion if left in the ground.
