Feedback from our Customers
Roco Saffron distributes their Saffron Crocus worldwide. We visit our customers on a regular basis to strengthen our relationship. Below you can find some professional wholesale Saffron customers from over the world during our visits on the Saffron fields.
Our Amish customer in Pennsylvania (USA)
The Amish population in the U.S.A. is known for growing an excellent quality of Saffron for over many generations.
As it is difficult to reach the Amish by phone we personally visited our customer and we are proud to have started them out expanding to a large Saffron production for years now!

Planting time in Sarral, Spain
Harvesting Time in October-November!
Great Saffron yields! Basket after basket full with Saffron flowers is being filled!
Using baskets is a good way of harvesting your crop as it will protect the flowers from being damaged.
Now it is Picking time. In most cases what we see in Italy & Spain the Saffron flowers are being thrown on a big table and the Saffron pistil picking can begin!
After picking the Saffron pistils the drying of Saffron can begin.
After drying the Saffron is being packed for retail purposes! Result, a very tasty and delicate product! The Red Gold!
Many thanks to our valued customer Ramon Palau Caralt (Azafrans Tulua) Sarral, Spain (Catalunya).
Meet our customer Roger from Spain
On of our new and young customers from Spain. Roger (Safran La Segarra S.L.) just finished university and is very enthusiastic starting his professional Saffron crop. Roger visited our farms in Holland and he was convinced of our quality and ordered a small amount to get started. After the first year of harvest, we are looking together how we can manage an increase to grow 2 Hectares!
Roger has built a special planting system whereby tubes are being used to plant the Saffron bulbs. This planting system ensures the spacing of the Crocus Sativus bulbs. The Saffron bulbs should be planted with sufficient spacing in order to give the mother Crocus Sativus bulb plenty of space to reproduce smaller bulbs. We advise to space the bulbs 15 Centimer (6 Inches).
Roger's premium quality of Saffron Crocus Bulbs (Crocus Sativus) have arrived from Roco Saffron:
After planting the Crocus Sativus bulbs, the first Saffron flower opens up in the Early morning under the Spanish sun! Ready for harvesting Saffron flowers:
After days of harvesting of Saffron flowers it was clear Roger needed more than only one box to store the Saffron flowers:
After picking the Saffron stigmas from the flowers, the Saffron is ready to be dried and the result is a plate of beautiful dark red Saffron from Spain:
One of our customers in Italy produced and is operating this beautiful Saffron pulverize machine! Contact us for more information:
