Variability in stigma length and apocarotenoid content in Crocus sativus L. selections of Kashmir
TLDR
Stigma size vis-a-vis quality evaluation confirmed that saffron of Kashmir is of intrinsically high quality with respect to colouring, aroma and taste. Expand
Saffron, an alternative crop for sustainable agricultural systems. A review
TLDR
The main biological, genetic and ecological traits associated with agronomic management techniques of saffron in relation to environmental conditions are reviewed and the biosynthetic pathway that leads to the formation ofsaffron secondary metabolites and their abundance in the spice is presented. Expand
Apocarotenoid gene expression in saffron (Crocus sativus L.)
TLDR
This study provides sufficient knowledge to identify clones with better stigma characteristics and higher apocarotenoid biosynthetic potential for further crop improvement programs. Expand
Distribution, chemical composition and medicinal importance of saffron (Crocus sativus L.)
TLDR
This review focuses on the detailed distribution, chemical composition and the medicinal importance of saffron. Expand
Crocus sativus L. genomics and different DNA barcode applications
TLDR
By the application of the DNA barcode technique, different Crocus species genomes are analyzed and some aspects of the phylogeny of this genus are partially clarified and it is demonstrated that barcoding method, usually adopted for interspecific taxonomic identification, could be also applied to intraspecific and population studies. Expand
Seed structure in Crocus sativus L. ×, C. cartwrightianus Herb., C. thomasii Ten., and C. hadriaticus Herb. at SEM
TLDR
Results indicate that the seed surface microstructure of C. sativus × is very similar to that ofC. Expand
Sa ff ron , an alternative crop for sustainable agricultural systems . A review
Saffron (Crocus sativus L.) is an autumnal flowering geophite whose dried stigmas, well known for their aromatic and colouring power, have been used since immemorial time as a spice in humanExpand
Embryo origin and development in Crocus sativus L. (Iridaceae)
TLDR
The absence of fruit and seed set in emasculated and self- and out-pollinated plants suggests that saffron does not form apomictic embryos. Expand
Saffron (Crocus sativus L.): gold of the spices—a comprehensive review
TLDR
The current knowledge about the taxonomy, geographical distribution, reproductive biology, chemical composition, therapeutic and traditional uses, and agro-technology of the world’s most expensive spice crop, saffron, are reviewed. Expand
Ethnomedicinal and Traditional Usage of Saffron (Crocus sativus L.) in Turkey
Abstract Saffron is an economically important multipurpose crop that is used as a spice, to obtain dye and perfumes, and in the development of new drugs by pharmacists in relation to human healthExpand

Karyological studies in Crocus IV
TLDR
Karyological observations chiefly in connection with meiotic chromosomes were made in seven species and varieties ofCrocus, finding three species to be hypodiploid having three bivalents and one univalent and one autotriploid with five trivalents. Expand
Variability in saffron (Crocus sativus L.)
TLDR
Due to sexual sterility of saffron, it is suggested that if the observed variations prove to be genetically determined, the clones which may be developed could increase yield and reduce the cost of saFFron production in the future. Expand
Cytology of the autotriploid allium rubellum
TLDR
The triploid form of A. rubellum appears to be an autotriploid and the karyotypic heterozygosity points to an intervarietal origin. Expand
Embryology and breeding systems inCrocus (Iridaceae)—a study in causes of chromosome variation
TLDR
It is suggested that apomixis is an unlikely explanation from the unusual amount of chromosomal variation found in some species ofCrocus, and alternative causes are discussed. Expand
In vitro development of parthenocarpic fruits of Crocus sativus L.
In vitro development of parthenocarpic fruits of Crocus sativus L. was induced by culturing ovaries on MS agar medium supplemented with growth-regulators (2,4-D, GA3 and BAP). Amongh these, 2,4-D wasExpand
