Crocus sativus bulbs of size 10/11
Size 10/11 saffron bulbs each have a diameter between 3.18 and 3.5 and a circumference between 10 and 11 centimeters.
The Crocus sativus bulbs of this size will already produce at least 2 flowers per bulb in the first year of planting. These bulbs often even give 3 or 4 flowers, but because the flowering is highly dependent on the meteorological conditions in the previous growing season, this cannot be guaranteed.
Healthy and strong bulbs
During the cultivation of our Crocus sativus bulbs, we try to limit the use of chemical crop protection to a minimum in order to be able to offer you the most sustainable product.
In addition, we grow our bulbs in the Netherlands on fertile sandy soils with a rich soil life and a high humus content. This ensures that the bulbs naturally contain a high level of nutrients, which promotes the development of the bulbs during their next growing cycle.
Quality of our saffron bulbs
The cultivation of our saffron bulbs is under the control of the Dutch flower bulb inspection service, the BKD. The Crocus sativus that you buy from us are qualified with class 1 on the basis of the implementation guideline for Species-Crocus.
The BKD is commissioned by the Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA) to inspect the quality of all flower bulb crops grown and traded in the Netherlands.
