SAFFRON

Image ID: 151404263

Caption : GULMARG, JAMMU AND KASHMIR, 03/03/2014: A small scale vendor selling dried saffron petals on a tourist boat in Dal Lake in Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir on February 22, 2014. Cultivating in Kashmir since Mughal period, saffron is one of the specialties of Kashmir. As per history, Mughals brought saffron from Iran in the 16th century. The exotic bulbs of the Crocus Ssativus flower are sown on an estimated 3,785 hectares (9,352 acres) of well drained, clay-loam land in May and June, and the flower is harvested in November. Cultivation is an elaborate and painstaking process: the flower's reddish three-part stigmas are hand-picked and sun-dried before they find their way to the market. It takes some 170,000 flowers to get a kilogram (2.25lbs) of saffron, a precious spice. And one gram of saffron is sold at 200 rupees.The spice is used extensively in Mediterranean, Mexican and Indian cuisines. Photo: K. K. Mustafah
