Hi Gary! There actually is no difference. My cheat sheet on spring alliums goes into that and more: https://food52.com/blog...

"Scallion" is a term that is variously used for spring onions, shallots and leeks- possibly others. Some writers make a definite distinction between spring onions, green onions and scallions- I honestly can't remember the distinctions; nothing that mattered much to me. Maybe spring onions are the ones with the beginning bulb bulge; wouldn't swear to it.
