Saffron flowers are seen in full bloom at a field in Pampore
Saffron flowers are seen in full bloom at a field in Pampore, 15 km (9 miles) south of Srinagar November 1, 2012. Saffron has been grown in Kashmir since the Mughal period, which began in the 16th century when saffron bulbs were brought from Iran. The bulbs of the Crocus sativus flower are sown on an estimated 3,785 hectares (9,352 acres) of well drained, clay-loam land in May and June, and the flower is harvested in November. Cultivation is an elaborate and painstaking process: the flower's reddish three-part stigmas are hand-picked and sun-dried before they find their way to the market. It takes some 170,000 flowers to get a kilogram (2.25lbs) of saffron, a precious spice. And one gram of saffron is sold at 200 rupees ($3.64). The spice is used extensively in Mediterranean, Mexican and Indian cuisines. Picture taken November 1, 2012.

A flower of crocus sativus, the saffron crocus, is seen in full bloom at a field during the saffron harvest in the central Spanish village of Consuegra October 28, 2010. For centuries, saffron has bedecked with purple in the Spanish plains where fictional character Don Quijote tilted at windmills and delicately flavoured paellas. It takes 400,000 stems to make up a kilo of saffron, which retails at about 10,000 euros ($14,000), although a few fragrant threads only are needed to give a typically tasty yellow tinge to traditional rice dish paella.
