Branches with barberry fruits transfer to processing halls using baskets.
In these halls, using wood and metal bases, the floors in the hall become larger.
These floors should be spaced apart so that air can flow easily.
To speed up this drying method, the farmers use fans.

The barberry that is prepared by this drying method is selling in the market under the name of puffy-shape barberry. Or the Persian name is ZERESHK POFAKI.

Barberry seeds are spread with high humidity under direct sunlight.

It takes about 1 to 2 months to dry barberry pomegranate seeds.
In this method, the barberries are turning upside down every few days to dry evenly.
The most important characteristics of barberry pomegranate seeds are:
