Saffron Crocus have arrived! Plant them this fall and you will have a new charming fall bloomer as well as one amazing harvest of this sought after spice. The bright red-orange threads you get when you buy saffron are actually the stigmas, or female portion, of the Saffron Crocus flowers. It takes hundreds of flowers to produce a commercially useful amount, which explains why saffron is so expensive. But for the average home gardener, two dozen Saffron Crocus will supply enough of the precious spice in the first year for a few memorable dishes. Then, the corms (which look like bulbs) will multiply and you'll be able to harvest more of the spicy stigmas. After 4 to 6 years, you should divide and replant them (do it right after the foliage has faded). Division prevents overcrowding, which can lead to a decrease in flowering.
To harvest and use Saffron, you will pluck the three stigmas that are borne in the center of each purple, cup-shaped bloom. The best time to harvest the stigmas is mid-morning on a sunny day when the flowers have fully opened and are still fresh. Carefully pluck the stigmas from the flowers with your fingers, then dry them in a warm place to preserve them for cooking. Store in a closed container...amazing!
