hi my friend i am mohammad of UAE .
let me advise you to do business very profitable.
My father has in Iran saffron farm I'm sure with this price you very very very much interest to get.
Iranian saffron is very very cheap but very very expensive in Europe and America and china .
You can use the internet in Europe and America and china to find more customers with a tempting offer.

If you do this you get lots and lots of income and wealth.
Our Iranian saffron better in the world per kg is $ 3,000 to $ 4,000.
However, in Europe and America between $ 10,000 to $ 13,000 Kg of saffron.
You can do research in this field and tel me.
I think this is an excellent opportunity for you.
If you want I can send you some samples of it for you.
I'll send a picture of it for you.
i am waiting for your reply.
