Pofaki (Puffy) Barberry Harvest Season

Barberry Harvest Season

Iranian edible red-barberries, which produce as in orchards in South Khorasan province of Iran, has no seeds.

All barberry trees in this province are of the same type and there is no difference in terms of race and type.

But the question here is why red-barberry is selling in the market under different names and types?
In answer to this question, we must explain that the methods of drying and processing barberry are different.
We have two following types in Iran’s market:

  1. Iranian Dried Pofaki Barberries (Puffy type)
  2. Iranian Dried Anari Barberries (Pomegranate Seed type)

In other words, barberry is not different from other orchards in South Khorasan province until it is harvested from the tree. But different methods for drying the crop cause dried barberry to be offered in different types in the market.

The harvesting season of fresh barberry from the orchards of southern Khorasan begins in late September and continues in some areas until November.

This time difference often depends on how cold the areas are.

To produce puffy barberry, after harvesting from the orchards, the barberry transfers to the processing and drying halls on branches. In fact, in this state, barberries don’t separate from the branches

As you can see in the picture above; Fresh barberry separates from the tree by a branch and sends to the hall (hall or shed) by basket.

To dry the barberry in a puffy way, the halls prepare in different types.

In some halls, barberries hang from the ceiling by a rope, and in some other barberry production halls, they place on shelves made of scaffolding or wood (the image below is an example of these drying halls).

In these halls, fans and valves usually use to allow air to pass through. So that the barberry loses its moisture and reaches normal and standard levels.

Barberry that dries in this way on a branch away from direct sunlight calls “puffy barberry”.
The drying process of puffy barberry takes about 3 to 4 months, depending on the humidity and the time of harvest from the tree.

The most important features of puffy barberry are its light color and completely puffy shape.
Obviously, this different methods of processing cause that puffy barberry price different from other types.
