Kashmiri saffron, one of the most expensive spices, has always been a preferred choice for many. Harvested just once a year, saffron is synonymous with Kashmir.
However, what if we tell you that this beautiful saffron is not from Kashmir but instead from Telangana’s Hyderabad.
Yes, you heard it right. In a first, Kashmiri saffron has successfully been grown in telangana.
Hyderabad-based startup UrbanKisaan has successfully grown Kashmiri saffron for the first time in Telangana and the pilot farming of the spice has shown positive results.
Dr. Sairam Reddy Palicherla, co-founder of UrbanKisaan says that a lot went into growing saffron that only grows in Kashmir.
In Fact the startup is even looking forward to growing Apples on their farms, and the prices of these they say would be low when compared to an actual Kashmiri Apple.
