In the same year, Greece ranked second by producing 5,700 kilograms. Morocco and Kashmir-India ranked third by producing 2,300 kg. In decreasing order, Iran, Greece, Morocco, Kashmir, Azerbaijan, Spain, and Italy dominate the world harvest. Most people believe that Spanish Saffron is famous.

In Iran, the world’s leading producer, Khorasan Province, grows 95 per cent of Iranian Saffron. Afghanistan has resumed cultivation in recent years, despite numerous cropping in Austria, England, Germany, and Switzerland, only selected locales to continue the harvest in northern and central Europe. Among these is the small Swiss village of Mund, whose annual saffron output amounts to several kilograms. Also, micro-scale cultivation occurs in Tasmania, China, Egypt, France, Israel, Mexico, New Zealand, Turkey, California, and Central Africa. Still, Iran is the best place to grow Saffron.
