A rack filled with various types of onions in Rubeus Hagrid's hut

An onion was an edible bulb produced by the plant Allium cepa.[1] Noted for their strong taste, onions were eaten as a vegetable and were often used to add flavour to roasts, soups, and salads.[1]

Molly Weasley served Harry Potter a "steaming" bowl of onion soup on the first night he spent at The Burrow in 1996.[2]

Onion juice was one of the ingredients in the ringworm-treating product Fergus Fungal Budge.[3]

There was a magical plant called Pungous Onion,[4] that may be related to the common variety.
