The price of saffron in Baghdad depends on different factors. Everyone knows that the price of saffron is not fixed and is constantly changing, and there are also different types of prices depending on the type of saffron.

Since saffron is a precious spice and is in great demand, there are many fraudsters in this business who want to trick you and sell counterfeit saffron. So we suggest you to know the types of saffron so as not to be deceived by these fraudsters.
Saffron in Baghdad
There are 5 types of saffron in Baghdad, which are: Negin, Sargol, Pushal, Dasteh, Konj.
In the following, we will give a brief explanation about these 5 types.
In the Negin saffron, the farmer must separate the thick strands of red stigmas. After separating these strings, it is called Super Negin. Super Negin saffron is usually used by various companies for export to other countries and in the Iranian market, this saffron is rarely found. Super Negin saffron has the best shape and color compared to other types of saffron. Our company (Ana Qayen) uses this type of saffron for export. The total color of this saffron is between 230 and 270 units.
In Sargol saffron, the farmer has to cut the red part above the stigma. When he separates that part, we call it Sargol saffron. In the Iranian market, Sargol saffron is common and almost all domestic sellers sell this type of saffron. The total color of saffron is numerically between 210 and 260 units, which is slightly less than Super Negin saffron.
In Pushal saffron, the farmer has to cut the stigma from the bottom of the red part. In this type of saffron, you will see a string that is yellowish, which is a sign of Pushal saffron. This type of saffron is more common in India. Also, the color of this type of saffron is between 170 to 250 units.
Dasteh saffron (in English Bunch)
The main string of saffron is called “Dasteh” or “Dokhtar-Pitch”. For bunch saffron, the farmer must separate the saffron strands from the petals, dry them and put them together. This type of saffron is considered as 4th grade saffron. Also, the color of this type is 120 to 150 units.
Konj or white saffron
In Iran, saffron is called Konj saffron when the rhizome is out of bunch and only the root or part is left white. This part has more perfume, but the red part has more valuable ingredients.
According to what was mentioned before, you can see different types of saffron in the picture below.
