Ramps are a type of wild spring onion. They are extremely seasonal.

Do you know how to use Google to do simple searches? http://en.wikipedia.org...
The name wild leek can also refer to Allium ampeloprasum, a species native to Europe. The name spring onion can also refer to scallions.
Allium tricoccum (commonly known as ramp,[1] ramps, spring onion, ramson, wild leek,[1] wood leek,[1] and wild garlic) is an early spring vegetable, a perennial wild onion with a strong garlic-like odor and a pronounced onion flavor.[2] Ramps are found across eastern North America, from the U.S. state of South Carolina to Canada. They are popular in the cuisines of the rural uplands of the American South, and also in the Canadian province of Quebec. Ramps also have a growing popularity in upscale restaurants throughout North America.

Unfortunately they are only available in spring. You might substitute scallions for now!

Also, if you live in the West they are almost impossible to find. Very mild flavored spring onions when the bulb is barely formed are the closest.
