Iranian Saffron

Iranian Saffron

At present, Iran is the largest producer of saffron in the world, so that 90% of the world’s saffron is grown in Iran. Some believe that the history of saffron production in Iran dates back to 2000 years ago, but industry activists say that the documentation of saffron production in Iran dates back to 800 years ago. In ancient times, this product was known as Zarparan, but gradually, according to the dialect of the people, its name was changed to saffron. In Iran, saffron was first cultivated on the slopes of the Alborz mountain range, but with the migration of people, its production came to the current Ghaenat.
