Technique Alters
Spice Harvest

Jerusalem — Saffron, the
most expensive of spices, will
be brought within reach of the
general population as a result
of techniques developed at the
Hebrew University of
Jerusalem.
The wholesale price of true
saffron (not to be confused with
Indian Saffron or turmeric,
which is prepared from the root
of an East Indian plant) is cur-
rently about $5 per gram due to
the great difficulties of its pre-
sent day commercial cultiva-
tion which is still labor inten-
sive.
The spice, which has a strong
exotic aroma and a bitterish
taste and is used mainly in rice
and fish cooking, consists of the
orange colored stigmas (the
part that should receive the
pollen) of the showy purple
crocus flowers, which are
painstakingly picked from the
flowers and then dried. As
flowers do not all bloom to-
gether, picking must be re-
peated daily for more than two
weeks.
Prof. Moshe Negbi of the De-
partment of Agricultural
Botany at the Hebrew Univer-
sity and Dov Basker of the
Ministry of Agriculture have
developed a technique for mass
cultivation of concurrently .
flowering saffron crocuses.
This makes it possible to har-
vest all the flowers mechani-
cally at one time.
In the past, saffron was used
in perfumes and in the compli-
cated medicines of ancient
China and medieval Europe.
Its modern therapeutic use
remains largely unexplored,
although it is known to contain
a heart stimulant, and it also
apparently reduces
atherosclerosis, a degenerative
disease of the arteries.

China Nixes
Formal Ties

ml Aviv (JTA) — Chinese
scholars and scientists want
to develop technical and
scientific cooperation with
Israel, but the government in
Beijing is not interested in
formal diplomatic ties at this
time, Prof. Josef Singer, presi-
dent of the Haifa Tbchnion,
said last week.
Singer, who just returned
from an 11-day visit to the
Peoples Republic of China at
the invitation of the Chinese
authorities, said the deans of
universities, scholars and
engineers plan to attend the
next convention of the Inter-
national Council of Aero-
nautical Science (ICAS) to be
held in Israel in August,
1988. Singer is the current
president of the ICAS. He
told a press conference here
that while China is prepared
to receive Israelis at any in-
ternational conferences there,
it is not prepared to establish
formal relations with the
Jewish State.
