Crocus sativus is valued for its famed condiment, saffron, constituted by the stigma and style of the flower. High quality of Saffron is grown mostly in Jammu and Kashmir.

Crocus sativus has showed encouraging results in reducing male infertility. It was given 16 male patients for three months. Kesar increased the sperm count remarkably; spouses of 13 patients (81.3%) reported pregnancy.
