This organic saffron comes from the fields of Suktana, a town just south of Taliouine, Morocco. Many residents of this region belong to the Taliouine Saffron Society. This high quality organic saffron is produced within about 10,000 square meters of land, comprised of individual fields located between many households. All members of the Taliouine Saffron Society use the same farming methods, which include planting saffron bulbs in piles of three, watering the fields 12 times a year, and using only natural fertilizers such as sheep manure.

"A man who is stingy with saffron is capable of seducing his own grandmother." - Norman Douglas, English Writer (1868-1952)

Saffron is the stigma of the Crocus sativus flower, which only blooms for three weeks every fall. Each bulb produces two to nine flowers and each flower contains three long, red-orange stigmas. The stigmas are handpicked and laid in the sun for two days to dry. They are then stored to complete the drying process. This community works hard with high standards to harvest this organic saffron and we are proud to have it on our shelves.
