Organic Crocus sativus bulbs size 8/9
Organic certified saffron bulbs of size 8/9 each have a circumference between 8 and 9 centimeters, with a diameter between 2.55 and 2.86 centimeters.
These size 8/9 bulbs are still quite small in size, so they will not flower profusely in the first autumn after planting. However, under normal growing conditions after a growth cycle of 1 year, these bulbs will give a rich bloom with a good organic saffron yield.
Organic certified bulbs
The organic bulbs that we sell in our shop 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.
