Greek Red Saffron (Krokos Kozanis)
Krokos Kozanis is a spice derived from the spots of the bulbs of the saffron plant and is a product with a Protected Designation of Origin. It is so valuable and nutritious for the body, also called "red gold". It is planted in late summer with early autumn and produces small purple flowers, with each having three red-gold threads inside. Annual production of saffron depends on the weather conditions and ranges from 6 to 12 tonnes of pure red saffron per year. It takes 150,000 flowers to produce 1kg of dried saffron stigma and about 50,000 stigmas to obtain 100 grams of red saffron which makes saffron the most expensive spice in the world.
