Poushal: This type has fine threads with slightly yellow or white ends. This type of saffron makes up for nearly 10 percent of saffron exports in Iran.
Sargol: This type of all red fine-threaded saffron is in fact the sorted version of Poushal. Therefore, its threads are broken. Almost 60 percent of the total exports of Iranian saffron is Sargol.
Negin: This type of saffron is red and coarse with very few broken threads. Both Sargol and Negin are all red and pure. They are only different in the portion of broken threads which is much higher in Sargol. Negin accounts for nearly 30 percent of Irianian saffron exports.
