Saffron cultivation in Afghanistan

The soil conditions at our contract grower in Afghanistan are of top quality. The remote area is far from any settlement or industry. Pesticides are not traditionally used, nor are synthetic fertilizers. The saffron flowers are carefully picked by hand in the early hours of the morning. With the first rays of sunshine of the day, the elegant flower heads of the saffron plant open and reveal their hidden treasure. Immediately after the harvest, the fine nubs - the saffron - are carefully plucked from the calyx.

With our premium quality saffron we support the “Saffron against Opium” project.
