Iranian Pofaki and Anari Dried Barberries

Iranian Pofaki and Anari Dried Barberries

Producers export Iranian Zereshk in the form of Puffy-Shape or Pomegranate-Seed-Shape barberries.
These two above names are the literally translates of their Persian names: Puffy and Dune Anari.

These two types of barberry are both dried, but there are many differences in the production process.
Here we want to deal with the differences between Pofaki and Anari Iranian Zereshk.

At first, you need to know that Anari barberries are the barberry fruits that get dry under direct sunlight. But Pofaki barberries are the barberry fruits that get dry while they are still on the branches and under the shade.

For this reason, Anari barberry has a darker color than Pofaki barberry.
Therefore, both varieties of barberry have the same nature and the same race. but the type of drying is different for each one.
And if you want to import Iranian Zereshk to Russia for the wholesale markets, first of all, consider your type of consumption and make a correct decision about the variety of barberry to import/export.

Another difference between these two types of barberry is in the final product. Iranian Anari Zereshk usually contains bruised and crushed barberries due to being overturned by the farmer. or you might see some tiny pieces of barberry leaves stuck on the barberry fruits.
But Pofaki Zereshk will not see these damages because it dries over time.

Of course, some farmers are trying to reduce fractures in Anari barberries by using new ideas.
Russia, Ukraine, Iraq, and Turkey are the main buyers of Iranian Zereshk.
