That’s exactly what we tried. In fact, we planted a couple of saffron bushes under a white, tropical house in Miami, where we could grow them a day before the show. They’re growing pretty well, though. It’s a really, really rare thing to see a saffron plant under white, tropical foliage, and it was an instant hit. All our guests were super inspired by growing a real plant on location—it’s definitely something you should check out!
Are you working with SFA to help grow this new saffron industry?
Yes! When it comes to growing saffron, I think it will be really interesting how many different people are willing to grow saffron in this culture of Miami! The biggest obstacles are the regulatory hurdles and costs of it all. When you talk about it in the States, it’s almost like it’s against the letter of the law. But it can be done—I’ve seen it already.
What about the new production facility? Was there ever an idea to keep it underground?
I’m really proud of the fact that this project is actually being built in a community that’s really working to make things happen, and not just just saying ‘This is what I want to do, I want to build a factory’. It’s really an awesome, amazing situation!
Where? Do you have any plans for a larger production?
We’re gonna open up the plant to the public after we’re done filming, but we have no plans to expand our plant and start branching out like we did with the movie.
What’s your next project?
Our team’s working on developing a documentary about the whole plant, which is incredibly fascinating to me. I can’t wait to see what we’re going to come up with!
Thanks so much to Elsio for taking the time to speak with us. I’m actually incredibly thrilled to have him show up to our show and help us educate people about the world of saffron, and to see him growing a saffron plant himself is an amazing accomplishment!
