Iran's Red Gold in America

After the Iran nuclear deal with the P5+1 (the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council–the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, France, and China plus Germany), America joined  to collect the customers of Iranian Saffron, of course after 15 years. In order to this country could buy straightly Iran's red gold from Iranian saffron businessmen. This is a good event for Persian saffron.

During the last 53 days of last year a kilogram of saffron in various packages of less than 10 grams, 10 to 30 grams and more than 30 grams with worth over 68 thousand dollars were exported to this country.

We should inform you that before the Iran nuclear deal, America like other countries bought Iranian saffron by intermediaries such as the United Arab Emirates, Spain, India and etc. But these countries bought the saffron Iranian with low price to the bulk form then pack them in yourself packing (Spanish Saffron, Indian saffron and etc.) and sell to European, America and etc.

Of course the different or various items made that Iranian saffron intermediaries or brokers reach more or high profit than the main manufacture that I’ll post this matter soon.

Saffron especially Iranian saffron is just as easy to grow if you follow a few simple rules:

  • Weather: Saffron is subtropical vegetation so it grows well in areas with moderate winters and warm, dry summer. Also saffron resistance is high against cold but it needs good and moderate weather because it grows in the period of autumn and winter and early spring in our nature.
  • Land: Saffron agriculture land must be in a sunny place (notably in autumn during the flowering stage), without trees as well as shouldn't be against cold winds.
  • Temperature: saffron maximum temperature should be between 35 and 40 ° C and its plant height should be between 1,300 to 2,300 meters above sea level.
  • Soil: saffron soil should be style or mixture of sand and clay soil. Because saffron onion remains in the ground for a long (7-5 years) so should be its soil suitable to provide food during this period and the resistance against the specific circumstances of the region. Also we can add some compost or manure. It is better to spread on the surface after planting.
  • Planting: Put 3-15 saffron onions into the ground at a 15 to 20 cm depth leaving a 10. And at the time of planting, the onions should be placed face up. Onions at a depth of 20 cm are safe against winter cold, environmental stresses and summer stroke heat.
  • Watering: We can start watering about 15 to 10 days after saffron onions planting that take planting to the end of September.
  • Flowers : saffron flowers generally appear in October (slightly later in the first year) and last for a month. If your flowers reduced after first planting, so I have noticed that this is a sign to dig up and replant.
