In my opinion, Saffran would work in AP. The reason why Saffron is expensive is the process of harvesting, 3 tiny thin stigmas need to be removed from the flower with an forceps.

Truffles, i think wont work, because truffels need to  interact with roots of trees.

sturgeon take years before they produce eggs (caviar)

you would need lots of crocus's to grow saffron

"it takes about 4,000 flowers to make an ounce of saffron"

every consider vanilla beans?  second most expensive spice, from the only "fruiting" orchid, likes cool, low light and damp..

 

Don't forget wasabi in there .Going to build an experimental greenhouse (after my current project is done and working) down near my creek in a shaded/cool area and see if I can get some to grow. If you read the environment that it likes to grow in, Aquaponics fits the bill. Just takes a long time to grow but worth its weight in gold.

Well at least they can be farmed. So maybe a transplant of one tree about the same size, and nd leave the truffle in the ground and see where it goes?? :)

Gimme moreeeeee ideas :) 

For sturgeon you would need fairly big tanks.  They have small sturgeon in one of the tanks at Epcot in the Land exhibit.

The Saffron takes long and is labor intensive for harvest and it requires so many plants for such a small yeild, I don't think anyone is making millions on it.

Now keep in mind that the most profit may come from unexpected angles.  Sometimes you can look to see what has a high dollar demand and manage to fill the niche to do well.  Other times you might see what you manage to grow well and see if there happens to be a good market for it.  The plants that I sold the most of at market were not really the ones I was expecting to do the best with.
