Saffron (Crocus sativus) Harvest
This is third year we are harvesting saffron crocus (Crocus sativus). Saffron is one of the most expensive spices in the world, worth more than gold (by weight). But we are lucky to have our own produce year after year with little care and production multiply every year. After seeing results for three years with all those adverse conditions etc, still we get bountiful harvest, that means Oklahoma seems to be one of the suitable location to grow saffron.
