Organic Crocus sativus bulbs of size 11/+
The organic Crocus sativus bulbs of size 11/+ are the largest size bulbs in our organic range. These bulbs have a minimum circumference of 11 cm and an average maximum circumference of 12 cm. The average diameter of these organic bulbs is between 3.5 and 4.5 centimeters.
Because our organically grown acreage is much smaller than our conventionally cultivated acreage, organic saffron bulbs of this largest size are only available to a limited extent.
Organic certified bulbs
Our organic saffron bulbs are certified organic by Skal Biocontrole, an independent organization that supervises the entire organic chain in the Netherlands on behalf of the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality.

The organic bulbs that we sell in our shop are grown completely organically, taking the environment and animal welfare into account as much as possible. For this organic cultivation we use organically certified sandy soils with a rich soil life and a high humus content. This ensures that you receive strong organic bulbs that have a high content of natural nutrients, which benefits the flowering and health of the saffron bulbs.
High quality organic bulbs
