Flowering time is from early May to early July. In each region, the flowering time takes 30-30 days. The flowers last for a maximum of one day, after which the bright pink color of the petals turns white, and with a slight breeze, the petals fill and fall off.
At this time, various traditional and industrial rose-picking workshops in all parts of the country, with distillation equipment, pick the flowers every morning, before the buds are fully open, and distill them with water vapor in different pots.
The resulting essential oil, which accumulates on the upper part of the fabric, is separated and kept away from light after dehydration in sealed jars. The essential oil is supplied in containers covered with felt. The remaining water from the distillation process is used as “rose” for various uses. About 3 kg of essential oil is obtained from every 3000 kg.
Propagation of damask rose flower plant
Damask rose flowers are propagated by seeds and vegetation.
Propagated by seeds
Car roses in their natural habitats are usually propagated by seeds. After the fruit ripens and opens, the seeds are scattered around and grow. The fruits of different species of roses usually ripen from mid-September to October. In seed propagation, when the color of these fruits is fried, they are picked and poured into a container and crushed.
After sieving, the seeds are dried and subjected to special treatments to increase their vigor. The treated seeds are planted in early autumn in rows 20 cm apart and 1 to 2 cm deep. With regular watering and weeding, the surface of the seedbed becomes green in early spring of the following year. The resulting seedlings can be transferred to the mainland from the early fall of the same year or the fall of the following year (depending on the size of the seedlings).
Propagation of damask rose flower by vegetative method is simpler and more economical compared to seed propagation and vegetative method is always used to propagate this plant.
Flower harvest is one of the most important, sensitive and costly factors in the production of damask rose flowers. The time of damask rose flower harvest in Kashan is from early June to mid-July.

If delayed, the color will turn white and fade within 24 hours. Therefore, it is necessary to harvest the open flowers daily before sunrise and preferably in cool morning weather
As the weather warms, the harvested flowers wither quickly. Due to the fact that the flowers are usually stored and compacted, fermentation activities are intensified
In addition, the activity of anthology workers slows down due to rising temperatures. For this reason, it is better for workers to rest in the middle of the day and limit picking work to the cool hours of the day
