Tasleema Banoo poses for a photograph while plucking crocus flowers, the stigma of which produces saffron, on a farm in Khrew, south of Srinagar, Indian controlled Kashmir, Saturday, Oct. 31, 2020. Farmers separate purple petals of the flowers by hand and, from each of them, come out three deep crimson-colored stigmas, one of the most expensive and sought-after spice in the world called saffron, also known as “the golden spice." Across the world, saffron is used in multiple products ranging from medicine, beauty and food. A kilogram (2.2 pounds) of saffron can easily sell anywhere between $3,000 to $4,000.
