Saffron is a spice obtained from the stigmas of the flower of CROCUS SATIVUS, commonly known as Rose of Saffron.
CROCUS SATIVUS belongs to the family of Iridaceae and it is characterised for having a purple flower with red stigmas and yellow stamens.
The flower of Crocus Sativus is sterile, because it is a hybrid that has been maintained for centuries because of the value of its stigmas. The reproduction of this plant is done with bulbs.
Each flower of Crocus Sativus has three stigmas of saffron, also called filaments, which are joined by the style.
The stigma are of trumpet shape, they are bright red gradually changing to yellow in the style.
- Stigma: feminine part of the flower, red colour and in trumpet shape.
- Stamen: Masculine part of the flower, yellow colour. Floral waist.
- Style: Extension of the Stigma that goes inside the flower. Yellow colour. It is considered Saffron if it is attached to the Stigma.
We need about 200.000 flowers to make one kilogram of saffron. Each flower is picked and separated by hand.
