Saffron has been well known plant for a long time as spices, dye and medicinal plant. It has been cultivated in Anatolia from ancient time. It has also cultivated in large area during Ottoman Empire and exported. But it lost its previous importance in last century. A few farmers are growing saffron in limited area of Safranbolu province. In recent years some studies have been made in order to progress saffron cultivation. Due to lack of corm material, these kinds of studies are not being done regularly. This research was carried out in autumn 2004 and was finished in May 2006. In this study, the effects of different harvesting times (every year and per two years) and corm sizes on number of corm obtained was investigated. Harvesting time and corm sizes affected on flowering of saffron and new corm regeneration.
