    @ Maria Simona Monti
    The main reason that Zaafran is too expensive is because it is very time consuming and laborious to pick up those red female organs from the tiny flowers with clips !
    Imagine how many of them should be pick up in order to get 100 grams!?

    I like zaafran very much,in cooking, and it is a beautiful flower too! I think, but I'm not so much sure, that its edible part is the red one! .....or the yellow......!!!????
    Tell me , please!!!
