An Uncommon Thread.
The world’s priciest spice is closing in on $3,000 a pound. No wonder the "Saffron King" tends to his business with the intensity of a drug runner
Saffron is expensive for basic reasons of labor and supply. To create one pound, 75,000 crocus flowers are needed. They grow best in the semiarid plains near Mashhad, Iran, covering the Earth’s floor like a purple blanket. The delicate crimson stigmas, each about as long as an eyelash, must be picked by hand before sunrise during a short window in October (the flower wilts in sunlight).
