What is Saffron?

The Saffron is a perennial herb which can be exploited for 5-7 years. It is 10-15 cm in height, and has spear and elongated needle shaped leaves. Its flowers are in beautiful shades of dark magenta that have six parts; it has three stamen filaments, style, stigma, and ovary. The style of saffron flower ends at the stigma and divides into three stigmas that are red colored; these red stigmas are famously known as saffron. The famous saffron known as saffron Negin and saffron sargol are produced using the stigmas.
