Growing and Harvesting Saffron Crocus Sativus
Growing and Harvesting Saffron Crocus Sativus : Saffron is a delicious and colorful seasoning that is used in breads, desserts, and main dishes in many parts of the world, especially in Iran. Without it, an Indian curry or Spanish paella just wouldn’t be the same.
The bright red-orange threads you get when you buy saffron are actually the stigmas, or female portion, of the Saffron Crocus flowers. It takes hundreds of flowers to produce a commercially useful amount, which explains why saffron is so expensive.
For the home gardener, however, two dozen Saffron Crocus will supply enough of the precious spice in the first year for a few memorable dishes. Then, with each successive year, the corms will multiply, the size of the planting will increase, and you’ll be able to harvest more of the spicy stigmas.
After 4 to 6 years, you should divide and replant the corms. Division prevents overcrowding, which can lead to a decrease in flowering.
