This purple plant has three dark red stigma which is planetd and harvested  traditionally. It is an effective medicine for depression and memory. The best quality of Saffron is from Iran, specially Khorasan province in North East.
Farmers do Saffron harvest before sunrise, Since after sunrise it flourishes and the stigma will be damaged. Also the flower keeps its smell during the night and spread  it during the day. This process takes a month and women separate stigma from flowers with hand. It is one of the reasons that saffron is an expensive crop.
