The saffron comes from the crocus sativus bulb flower, very easy to cultivate, and perfect for the limestone soils of Provencal terroir. It’s an autumnal flower, parma color with a red pistil containing 3 stigmas. When these point outside the petals, saffron is ready to be picked. It’s then important to pick up the flowers quickly, as the pistil can be damaged in a few hours because the petals don’t protect it any more.
Saffron is the most expensive spice in the world, and the only one to come from a flower. Since ancient times, the Romans and the people of Provence have cultivated saffron. It’s used in many French gastronomy preparations and many fish dishes of the Provencal cuisine.
