FOR PRE-ORDER ONLY (SHIPS SEPTEMBER 2019) Talk about a cash crop, the dried stigmas and styles of Crocus sativus are known as one of the most expensive spices by weight; now you can grow your own saffron in your garden. Saffron is revered for its unique flavor that has been described as a slightly metallic honey with hay notes. Saffron has a remarkable history; it is said that Cleopatra liked her bath scented with saffron. (Caution: Only the stamens are edible. The leaves, flowers and bulbs of this plant are poisonous if ingested. Do not take internally.)

Review:

I waited a couple weeks after receiving to plant these, then I just threw them in some old potting soil in a container because I didn't have time to till a spot. The bulbs were *clearly* very fresh when packed. They were already sprouting and didn't suffer for my procrastination. 5 have already bloomed (one double) and 2 more have poked up in the last 2 hours!! This is nuts; I love these babies!!! Smell is far sweeter than the dried spice. I wish I had $500 to blow on these!

Review:

I bet you think saffron is difficult to grow because it's so expensive. Right? Stop letting commerce tell you what to think and grow your own saffron, already! It's a desert plant, so it detests overwatering and wants LOTS of full sun. Plant the bulbs in fertile (but not overly fertile) soil. Containers are fine as long as the dirt is good. Water once or twice but that's it. In the fall, harvest flowers when they're open and fragrant underneath afternoon sun. Pinch off blossoms; do not pull up the corm! Pluck out the 3 red stigmas, let them dry, then heat them to about 100-120 degrees (I do it in my oven) and store them at least a month before you use them. If you don't age them, you won't get good flavor. Now, take care of the corms all winter and through the summer, watering only when necessary. Around July, dig them carefully and you'll probably be delighted to see that each corm has divided to two or four! Carefully separate those, replant with appropriate spacing, and repeat.

Review:

I got these beginning of October. I planted them by mid-October and they are flowering by the third week of November. They were easy to grow, and most of the bulbs have sprouted. The flowers are beautiful and I am able to harvest saffron threads!
