Iranian Dried Barberries Production and Processing Factory
It is the largest red barberry production center in the east of Iran.
As a matter of fact, Iran is the main producer of red-edible Berberis Vulgaris fruits in the world.
South Khorasan province, along with saffron, is also a barberry producer.
Barberries and saffron are known as two strategic products in the market of this province.
A high percentage of farmers are active in the production and processing of barberry in this part of the country.
And due to the recognition of Iranian barberry in world markets, we are witnessing an increase in the production of this product with high properties.
Having many medicinal properties of this product causes different countries to seek the use of barberry.
Iranian barberry has buyers with various consumptions in international markets.
In each of the production cities, different quality products are offering to the market.
The reason for the difference in the quality of barberry is the different weather conditions, the type of water used, and the way the orchards are cared for.
All of these factors affect the final barberry.
Obviously, the processing quality of the dried barberries factory affects the final product directly.
Barberry Drying Workshops
To dry the barberry in puffy shapes, the barberry separates from the tree when the fruits are still on the branches.
Barberries transport by the branches to drying halls and workshops.
In these halls, floors are created using wood and barberry branches are placed on it.
Barberries need 3 to 5 months to fully lose moisture after placing them in the barberry drying halls.
This period depends on the weather conditions and the amount of humidity in the environment.
Fans and jet fans are also using in some halls to reduce the drying time of puffy barberries.
The barberry that dries in this way does not lose its puffy-shape and its crushing percentage is very low.
On the other hand, because barberry dries in the shade, its color is lighter than other types of barberries.
But to produce Pomegranate-seed-shape barberries (Persian Anari Zereshk), you do not need a barberry drying hall or workshop.
Barberry harvests from the tree and separates from the branches. And then the farmer exposes them to direct sunlight.
When barberry is removed from the branch, the seeds are usually damaged and the crushing percentage is higher.
On the other hand, the color of pomegranate seed barberry is darker than other barberries.
