Persian Saffron

Originally from the Persian Empire, saffron is a spice derived from the flower of the Crocus Sativus plant.

Negin Saffron is graded as “the longest and thickest saffron stigma” harvested. Each flower (Corcus Sativus) bears only three stigmas with the rare exception to special four stigma saffron flower. Our Iranian Negin Saffron is made up of these red stigmas which have been professionally hand picked and separated from the flower prior to natural drying, resulting in the highest quality saffron threads available on the market.
