This is basically shallots. Would you be possibly talking about wild onions ? They look like baby shallots....

They look like regular ole fashioned shallots to me. I can easily see soe one calling em gumbo onions for sure cause tey been in many a gumbo pot. We usta have a plate of the onions trimmed wit a lil green still on em on the table growing up my parents loved munching on them or slicing them into their supper plates. The strong green onion taste was great in stews or beans.
