Onion-flavored?



I've got these looper caterpillars in my onions.

Don't mind the dog hair in this picture. It's just a fact that dog hair pervades virtually every aspect of my life, and it's in our food chain from the garden to the table.


Anyway, when I see these caterpillars, I pluck them off the onions and toss them to one of the numerous fence lizards that live around the yard. And I have to wonder, does this juicy morsel taste onion-y? Maybe a little more savory than the same little green caterpillars that I pulled off my snow peas earlier this spring? Maybe, indeed, but I don't think I'll ever find out first hand.
