About Greek Saffron
In Greece, greek red saffron is also known as Krokos Kozanis (Crocus Sativus Linneaus plant). Krokos blossoms only once a year in October / November, for barely 2 weeks, creating a purple magic carpet as far as the eye can see.
The flowers are harvested daily by hands, right after the morning dew has evaporated, where saffron antioxidants are at their peak. The work takes place from sunrise till sunset, rain or shine and lasts approximately 20 - 25 days.
The harvested petals are then immediately separated by hand from the saffron stigmas and stamens (male & female organ), followed by stigmas’ drying process, ensuring that the saffron is at its highest potency.
