ELDERLY KASHMIRI MUSLIM WOMAN HOLDS STIGMA OF SAFFRON FLOWERS IN
PAMPORE. 
An elderly Kashmiri Muslim woman holds stigmas of saffron flowers, in
Pampore, on the outskirts of Srinagar, October 27,2002. Saffron has
been grown in Kashmir since the Mughal period, which began in the 16th
century. In highly drained clay-loam soil, the saffron crop is sown on
an estimated 17,000 hectares of land in Kashmir in the months of May
and June and the flower is harvested at the onset of autumn. It takes
some 170,000 flowers to get a kg (2.25lbs) of saffron, a precious
spice. NO RIGHTS CLEARANCES OR PERMISSIONS ARE REQUIRED FOR THIS IMAGE REUTERS/Fayaz Kabli
