Iranian saffron cut types
The Saffron flower has a style that is the female part of the flower that is white in the bottom and changes to red in the top. The style becomes trifurcation like a fork. The most color, taste, and aroma strength are on the top red parts. People in Iran and Spain cut the saffron styles from different points to categorize them in different grades.
What is the difference between saffron types?
A long saffron thread includes white, yellow, and red parts. The white part is called root, Konj, cream, or white. We cut saffron in different points to produce various types of saffron. Our workers cut saffron from the yellow part to produce Pushal saffron. It's also written Poushal, Poushali, or Pushali saffron. Pushal saffron includes all red and a little yellow part of the saffron style; so, it has less color strength than Sargol and Negin saffron cuts. Pushal saffron is also called sierra saffron in Spain. Our workers cut saffron from the trifurcation point of saffron style to produce Negin saffron. It gives us three-part red parts of saffron style. We categorize Negin grade in two main segments; Super Negin saffron includes bigger, thicker, longer, and higher color strength saffron styles rather than normal Negin saffron. The workers sift saffron to produce Sargol saffron. Sargol saffron means the top of the saffron style. It's also called Coupe saffron in Spain.

Iranian Saffron vs. Spanish saffron
which one is better in quality?
Spain harvests only about 1.5 tons of saffron a year, but how does it export about 90 tons of the world's most precious spices? An in-depth look at the massive difference between the production and export of this product shows that Iranian saffron is sold to international buyers with fake labels called high-quality Spanish saffron. So, if you used to buy Spanish saffron, with a probability of 90%, you already used Iranian saffron. It happens in Hong Kong and India too. We export Iranian saffron to Spain, Hong Kong, India, Italy, and many other countries.
What is the price of each saffron type?
The price of saffron is in order of their grade. The most expensive type of saffron is Negin saffron, especially Super Negin grade. Then, Sargol saffron because it includes all red parts of saffron. After that, Pushal saffron, and the cheapest type of saffron is bunch type. When workers separate saffron styles from flowers, they put the saffron styles on top of each other and wrap them to produce Bunch saffron. It's also called Dokhtar Pich, Daughter Screwed, Daste Pitsch, or Khooshe.
Which factors are affecting the saffron price?
1. Order amount: Saffron transport through air freights, and the exporter has some fixed cost to do customs formalities. So, most significant exporters are interested in working with big buyers.
2. Delivery time: Importing saffron before traditional or religious celebrations in some countries affects saffron availability. One of the essential factors in pricing saffron depends on the availability at certain times like the month of Ramadan in Islamic countries.
3. Quality: As we wrote upper, the saffron cut is essential in the pricing.
