It takes around 50,000 flowers to get just 250 grams of spice. And the process requires skilled labors for a quality yield.

The cultivated plant requires well dried and rich soil with a full sunny summer climate. Iranian saffron is popular wide in the world.

How to identify the pure saffron from adulterated saffron:

One of the common methods to identify the pure spice is by cold water test. Take a few threads and put it in cold water. Both adulterated and pure saffron will release a golden hue color in the water but the purest one will take a minimum of 10 minutes to release the golden hue color. On the other hand, the adulterated saffron releases the color instantly once, the threads got mixed with water.
