The Cultivation of Crocus has a history
that spans over three Millennia and is lost in the depths of Mythology where there are dozens of versions of its Origin.
In one of the most significant references to Crocus during the
Minoan Bronze Age, a fresco of the “Crocus Collector” was found in the NW part of Knossos Palace in Crete,
as well as in the ancient City of Akrotiri in Santorini, dating back to 1700-1500 BC.
