The types of saffron
As was mentioned earlier, saffron is sold in 5 types. In the following, we will give you a brief explanation about these types.
Dasteh (in English Bunch) Saffron
“Dasteh” or “Dokhtar-Pich” is the main strand of Iranian saffron. When the farmer picks the strands of the saffron from the petals, he dries them and puts them together. The top part of these strands is red and the bottom part is orange. The overall color of this type is between 120 to 150 units. The price of this type of saffron is the lowest.
If the farmer cuts the stigma from the part lower than the red part, it is called Pushal saffron. In this type of saffron, you can see a yellowish strand. This shows that the saffron is genuine and therefore, many people trust this type of saffron more (However, if you trust the brand’s name, Sargol and Super Negin are better in quality and shape). This type of saffron has an overall color of between 170 and 250 units.
Sargol Saffron (aka Sarghalam)
If the farmer cuts the top red part of the stigma, it is called Sargol saffron (which means the tip of the flower in Persian). Therefore, this type of saffron is all-red. The overall color of this type of saffron is between 210 to 260 units.
Super Negin Saffron
This saffron is actually a type of Pushal saffron. if the farmer separates the thick strands of red stigma, this type of saffron is produced. Many companies use this type of saffron for export and have the best appearance and color among all types of saffron. Ana Qayen also uses this type of saffron for export. This saffron has an overall color of 230 to 270 units. It is worth mentioning the production of this type of saffron is a bit difficult and time-consuming, yet the stigmas are thick and straight which is alluring to the customers.
Konj or White Saffron
As you studied earlier, saffron has two parts: Sargol (stigma containing three branches) and root (cream). The main part is red and is famous for Sargol (which means the tip of the flower in Persian). The white part attached to the end of the Sargol is called the saffron root or white saffron. The color of these strands is light yellowish-white. Saffron root is also famous for Konj saffron.
