More About Saffron

Cultivation practices of saffron in Kashmir have changed very little over the ages. Therefore, its cultivation is organic by default. The unique topography, soil and weather in Kashmir coupled with the age old curing techniques infuse such flavor, aroma and colour to saffron which is unsurpassed anywhere in the world.

Crocus saffron is a hystranthus plant. This means that corms send out leaves and flowers aboveground at different times of the year. Saffron leaves start to appear in the month of March and die down as hot summer approaches. As winter starts to creep into the valley and nights become cooler saffron flowers start to appear in the fields. From third week of October to 15th of November is the peak flowering period. Pluck¬ing of flowers is to be done only with fingers without trampling the soil below. The job is quite demanding as about 01, 50,000 flowers produce about one kg of saffron. After harvest saffron flowers are usually sundried and stigmas are separated from the flowers. The age old post harvest regime is the key in retaining and enhancing the famed flavor, colour and aroma of Kashmir Saffron.
