Pure Iran saffron

Pure Best Quality Saffron Directly sourced from Iran.
There are only two or three places in the whole world where saffron grows. Iran has the proud privilege of being one of these places. There are two locations in Iran where saffron grows. One of these two places is Pampur. Pampur is a small town, which is 13 km from Srinagar. The saffron plant is very small and its flower is the only part which is seen above the ground. The blooming time of this flower is autumn. Saffron has a unique sweet smell and is used in dyeing and cooking.
The orange-red stigmas of the saffron plant produce a pleasant aroma and a warm golden orange color. The yellow stamens are also harvested, however they do not have the same aromatic and color properties of the stigmas. Pure saffron consists of only the orange-red stigmas of the saffron plant. Saffron is also believed to have many medicinal properties. Called Kesar in the rest of India, saffron is used as a flavoring agent in many food preparations, from rice dishes, such as biryani, to various sweets.
The botanical name of Saffron is Crocus sativus. The purple colored flowers appear just above the ground and are a beautiful sight. The orange stigmas of the saffron plant are harvested as saffron and used as a flavoring and coloring agent in various recipes. Saffron is added to Kahwa - the traditional Saffron Tea drunk by people in Iran.

Why is genuine "Mancha" persian saffron so precious ?
The saffron flower must be hand picked at dawn on any of the 15 to 20 days in which it is in bloom mostly during end-October. The flowers are collected in baskets, and transported to the villages where the precious stigmas are removed by hand. To give an idea of the laborious nature of this work we can say that from 160,000 saffron flowers, approximately, 5.25 Kg of stigmas are obtained which, once dried, produce only 1 Kg. of saffron. Due to it's properties, "Mancha" saffron is beneficial to health, and used in many recipes. persian "Mancha" saffron is the best in the world, owing to higher levels of aromatic & flavouring oils. persian saffron’s red-filament are the longest. The charecteristics of genuine persian Mancha saffron is that the stigma's must be joint in the three's at the end of a portion of the style, which is yellow in colour.The stigma's must be longer than the styles and their colour vibrant - red, never dark red.

How was the word Saffron derived?
The word saffron was derived from the Arabic word ' Za`faraan'. It was the Arabs who first planted saffron in Spain, when they came to Spain, over a 1000 years ago.

How should saffron be stored?
Saffron must be protected from dampness & light to retain it’s properties longer. Good quality saffron keeps well for upto 2-3 years, but poor quality saffron deteriorates rapidly, so it is very important to buy only good quality.

How can we tell the difference between genuine saffron and dyed stuff?
If you immerse dyed imitation saffron in water or milk, you will get the colour very quickly and feel pleased that this "saffron" is good, whereas it is the artificial dye coming off quickly. With genuine saffron, the colour develops only after soaking for few minutes and rubbing with a spoon. If the saffron is very cheap, be careful as it could be adulterated.

Imports

Saffron is imported and exported all over the world. Spain is seen as the world's largest exporter. It imports large amounts of saffron from major saffron producing countries such as Iran, Greece and Morocco, to then export the processed or packaged saffron to other parts of the world.

One of the factors that made this possible, was the embargo placed on Iranian saffron imports by the American Government. The saffron was simply rerouted through Spain to the US; sold many times as Spanish.

In Europe, some of the top importers of saffron are Sweden, Germany, Italy, France, Switzerland, Austria, the UK and Russia. In Asia, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, and Australia are large importers. In South America, Argentina, Mexico, Chile, Brazil and Venezuela. For the African continent, South Africa is the main importer. And in the Middle East it is Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Oman.

Incense Route

The Incense Route was an ancient trading route which passed from Ethiopia, through the Arabia Felix and on to Gaza. Precious spices, frankincense and myrrh were carried along its route. The Queen of Sheba, who had palaces in Yemen and in Ethiopia, traveled along this route, when she visited King Solomon. Along with her, she brought gifts of saffron spice and fragrance.
