It might have originated in Iran, western India, or Central Asia. Nobody really knows, but traces of onions have been found in Chinese Bronze Age settlements dating as far back as 5000 BCE, and the ancient Egyptians thought its lovely shape and concentric rings symbolised eternal life, using it in burials.
