Pure and authentic Kashmiri Saffron is collected from the blossoms of Crocus sativus (Iridaceae), commonly known as saffron crocus or saffron bulbs. It is propagated by bulbs called corms which are planted on a virgin piece of land.
Each corn is planted from new bulbs, and this is how the plant multiplies. Through these bulbs, dark purple-colored flowers come in autumn which are saffron flowers.
By the middle of October, saffron flowers begin to blossom, and this blooming lasts for about three weeks.
There occurs a period of intensified blooming called the “blanket days” which last from two to six days where a saffron flower becomes a dark purple colored beautiful flower which has stigmas and threads later on processed to use as the pure and authentic Kashmiri Saffron strands.
