But the question is, why do customers choose Puffy barberry to buy?

Also, it’s better to notice that these differences are more about the appearance of the product.

Due to the fact that the drying process of puffy barberry is longer than other varieties, as a result, it takes on a puffy state and has a very desirable appearance.

Other Varieties of Iranian Red Zereshk

Another well-known and best-selling type of barberry in the Iranian market and some international markets is Iranian Anari Zereshk.
This type of barberry has a darker color than puffy barberry because it dries in direct sunlight, which causes the seeds to be darker.

On the other hand, the amount of juice and extract of this product is higher and the reason is very specialized, which does not fit in this space. In this regard, Anari barberry is also in use in different countries.

This type of barberry is cheaper than Pofaki (Puffy). This is why countries such as Russia and Turkey are the main buyers of this product.
