I am literally in love with it. Nice package. The saffron itself is high quality, amazingly natural red and the aroma has a heavenly smell. It's premium as they claim. Perfect for a gift or for home cooking. Really good catch for a price paid.

I have been using Saffron for more than 10 years and have never been satisfied with the routine available saffron in local stores. But Persian Saffron is very different. Their price is fair and their saffron quality was perfect .I will buy again soon.

This is the best online saffron I have found so far. I am the private chef in a household that favors Middle Eastern, Indian and Vegan dishes. It is premium and Whenever I use it in the dishes every one fell in love with my dish The container is beautiful and forms a tight seal and it’s also safe to keep saffron there since glass packages can be broken and then all the saffron should go to garbage since it’s going to get mixed with glass pieces but with this packaging I won’t lose a single thread.

I typically use Spanish saffron but did a little research; users suggested golden Persian saffron as the best .So I ordered 5 grams to see if that’s true. It is fantastic. It has a pure taste and a beautiful deep redishorange color when have it in hot water prior to use.so users were right it’s really greater than Spanish saffron. It is delicious, have better smell and color compare to Spanish saffron.
Saffron is one of the highly prized spices known since antiquity for its color, flavor and medicinal properties and also can be used as a fabric dye. It is the dried "stigma" or threads of the flower of the Crocus sativus plant. It is a bulbous perennial plant that belongs to the family of Iridaceae, in the genus, Crocus, and known botanically as Crocus sativus.
The Crocus sativus plant grows to about 15-20cm in height and bears lavender colored flowers during each season which lasts from October until November. Each flower features perianth consisting of a stalk, known as “style,” connecting to three “stigmas” or threads to the rest of the plant. These red-yellow colored stigmas along with the "style" constitutes "saffron" which is used as condiment spice. Saffron has been the world’s most expensive spice by weight for decades. It takes 150,000 flowers to make 1 kilogram of saffron.
Good saffron crop production demands cool dry climate with well-drained rich fertile soil and irrigation facilities or sufficient amount of rain fall. The flowers are generally harvested during the early-morning hours and soon their stigma separated, allowed to dry, and packed for marketing. Saffron has a distinct flavor that comes from chemical compounds in it such as picrocrocin, and safranal. It also contains a natural carotenoid chemical compound, crocin, which gives saffron its golden-yellow hue. These traits along with its medicinal properties make it a valuable ingredient in many cuisines worldwide.
