The English word saffron comes from Latin safranum, via the 12thcentury old French term safran. Another theory states that safranum derives from the Arabic word, az zafaran, literally, the adjective asfar, meaning yellow. It is called kesar or zaafran in Hindi and Urdu; kungumapu in Tamil; kumkuma puvva in Telugu; zaafran in Persian; zanghonghua in Chinese; safran in German; zafferano in Italian and azafran in Spanish.
