Saffron is an herbaceous bulbous plant. It has long, green and lineal leaves which grow forming tufts.

It comes from Asia, where it has always been used for its fragrance, colouring power and as a medicinal plant. In the zone of La Mancha saffron is still planted, and even in some rural places it is included in the dowry.

It reaches high prices in the market as saffron is very delicate to grow, pick and handle.
