The history of Persian Saffron cultivation and its extension in Iran
Persian Saffron cultivation has been commonplace in many parts of Iran’s central plateau since ancient times, as some researchers consider the origin of Saffron from the medieval dynasty. In the Achaemenes era, Persian Saffron was used for building perfume and aromatic oils, as well as preparing a special bread for king guests. During the Parthian period, Persian Saffron was considered as one of the goods exports to Rome.
At the time of the Arab conquest of Iran, Larkimes was used to name saffron that with the spread of Arabic culture in the Persian dialect, the word was changed to al-Za’fran, and then to its present form, Za’fran. After Arabs and Iranian Muslims took Andalusia (Spain) in the tenth century, saffron was cultivated in this country. Subsequently, in the eighteenth century, saffron was cultivated in a region known as Walden in England, and today it is known as Walden Saffron.
After Muslims troops entered India, the saffron cultivation was started in Kashmir. Because in the pre-Islamic sources, nothing was mentioned about the saffron cultivation and production in this country. Also, saffron has a special value for the people of Egypt, Greece, Jews, Hindus, and Muslims.
Historical evidence suggests that saffron was cultivated in most parts of Iran, especially in central provinces, Hamedan, Isfahan, Fars, Kerman, and Khorasan.
The saffron cultivation is currently limited to Khorasan, Fars, Yazd, Kerman, Semnan, Markazi Province, and Esfahan and the highest level (98%) of Persian saffron cultivation in Iran is mainly in the southern and central cities of Khorasan and some in the Estebahan province of Fars.
