Saffron Plant (100 Bulbs)- Crocus Sativus-Grow your own plant of this rare spice

Saffron_Crocuses Get out your favorite Spanish or other ethnic cookbook and begin to dream! Soon you’ll be growing your own supply of saffron, that painfully expensive spice that is called for in so many delicious recipes including Seafood Paella, Golden Saffron Cake, and Mushrooms and Leeks with Saffron Rice. And keep in mind, just because you’ve found the source, now’s no time to forget your culinary buddies. Share. It begins blooming in September and continues through October! The purple flowers have deep purple veining! It’s orange-red stigmas are the source of saffron, the worlds most expensive spice! Plant in full sun or partial shade and well-drained soil. In cooler regions the Saffron Crocus can be grown in containers. You can harvest the saffron when the flowers are blooming Saffron, used by Gourmet Chefs in many dishes, is the spice derived from the flower of the Crocus sativus or saffron crocus plant. Saffron, native to Southwest Asia, has long been among the world’s most expensive spices by weight! It takes 150,000 orange-red stigmas of the flowers of the saffron crocus to make two pounds of saffron spice. PLEASE NOTE: Plant the bulbs as soon as they arrive so you can harvest the saffron in the fall. These beautiful purple crocus bloom in the fall but should not be confused with the autumn blooming crocus (crocus colchicums) which are not edible. I suggest you plant and mark the location of the bulbs because after the autumn blooming the leaves will disappear. You will need at least 20 bulbs for a first year harvest but if not all the bulbs bloom this fall just wait until next autumn for an increased supply.
