IRAN: Iran´s saffron seeks global recognition

The delicate purple leaves of the Crocus sativus plant hold just three or four of the even more delicate red stamen, better known as saffron, that sprouts for just 10 days a year. The government says more than 90 percent of the world´s saffron grows from the hard soil in Khorasan province of northeastern Iran — a figure corroborated by France´s specialist institute of agriculture and fishing FranceAgriMer — eventually finding its way into Spanish paellas, Indian curries, Swedish saffron buns and much more. India is a distant second, followed by Greece, Morocco, Azerbaijan, Afghanistan and Spain, according to a FranceAgriMer report in 2013. (Quoted from theiranproject 30-11-2018)
