Pofaki & Anari Zereshk Production

Zereshk Production

Barberry production in Iran is specific to the east of the country and South Khorasan province.
The climate and soil of this province are very suitable for the growth of barberry tree, and on the other hand, this product needs low irrigation.

Barberry is a shrub with a height of 1 to 3 meters from which at the peak of fruiting each year about 20 kg of crop harvests.

It is noteworthy that puffy barberry and pomegranate seeds harvest from one type of berberis vulgaris tree.
Processing methods that perform on barberry when it dries, divide it into different categories and types.
It takes about 1 month to produce pomegranate seed barberry (Persian Anari Zereshk). And puffy barberry needs between 3 to 4 months after harvesting fruits from the tree.

Puffy barberry (Known as Pofaki Zereshk in the wholesale market) has a lighter color than pomegranate seed barberry.
Pomegranate seed berberis vulgaris fruit is cheaper than other types of barberry and therefore its sales volume is considerable.

The main wholesale markets of pomegranate seed barberry and dried puffy barberry are as follows:

  • Birjand
  • Qa’en
  • Mashhad
  • Tehran

Each of these markets has advantages and disadvantages for buying major products. The most important of which is the impact on product prices.

Iranian Anari Zereshk Wholesale and Export Center

Iranian Anari Zereshk

The main center of production and sale of barberry, Anari and Pofaki types, as you know, is in Birjand and Ghaenat cities and counties.
In these regions, various workshop production units are active in the production and processing of barberry.

The main cold stores for long-term storage of barberry are in these two main cities of South Khorasan province.
In this regard, there are several options for bulk purchase of barberry in this province.

Pomegranate seed barberry, which is ready to the market approximately 1 month after the harvest season, undergoes the following processes in the production units after drying:

  1. Removing the product leaves
  2. Removing and sorting the barberry thrones
  3. Separating the tails
  4. Removing immature barberries
  5. Hand sort (Sorting and selecting by hand)
  6. Bulk packaging

These steps perform in the barberry processing line after the barberry moisture reaches normal and standard.

Iranian Barberry Fruit Production in 2020

Barberry Fruit Production

Possible estimates for barberry harvest in 2020 from farms in South Khorasan is that barberry production is lower than last year.

In 2019, the production volume of barberry was very high and the large supply in July and August of 2020 is the reason for this claim.
One of the reasons for the price decrease in the summer of 2020 was the same supply pressure from active producers in South Khorasan province.

But due to the lower yield of barberry trees this year, it is more likely to have a higher quality crop.

In other words, the quality of barberries will be higher than in 2019, and this issue will be very important for exports.
From March 2019, due to the arrival of Corona virus in Iran, the sales volume of barberry in the market had a very sharp decline, which its main reasons were:

  • Closing of wedding ceremonies
  • Closure of restaurants and canteens
  • Cancellation of Hajj ceremony

These items had a great impact on reducing sales and in turn reducing the price of products.
