The Saffron Flower: A Precious Blossom
The Crocus Sativus
Kesar is derived from the Crocus sativus flower, a member of the iris family. Each flower produces only three vivid red stigmas, carefully harvested to obtain saffron threads.
Saffron harvesting is a delicate and labor-intensive process. Skilled farmers handpick the delicate threads, making it a time-consuming and intricate affair.
Unraveling the Cost of Saffron: Why Is It So Expensive?
Saffron’s high price can be attributed to several factors:
Each saffron flower produces only a small number of precious threads, making it a labor-intensive and low-yield spice.
Harvesting and Processing
Handpicking and drying saffron threads requires time, effort, and skilled labor.
Saffron cultivation demands specific climatic conditions and is restricted to a few regions worldwide.
Rarity and Demand

Identifying Original Kesar
Given its high value, saffron is susceptible to impurity. Here’s how to identify authentic kesar:
Look for the Threads
Genuine saffron consists of vivid, dark red threads with a slight orange hue. Avoid buying saffron powders or finely ground saffron, as they are more likely to be degraded.
Aroma and Taste
Authentic saffron exudes a distinct and strong aroma. It should release a deep orange color when soaked in warm water or milk. The taste should be slightly bitter with a subtle sweetness.
Place a few strands of saffron in water to check for impurities. If the water turns yellow immediately, it might indicate the presence of artificial dyes.
Purchase from Reputable Sources
Buy saffron from reliable and reputable sources known for selling high-quality spices.
