It is noticeable that when we talk about types of barberry we mean processed barberries which are categorized based on price and quality. They aren’t obtained from different trees like dates. All the barberry trees and properties are the same (of course trees which are grown in different areas with different situations have different quality and quantity).
Producing barberry is related to its process methods.

  • Puffy Barberry
  • Shiny Barberry
  • Organic Barberry

This is the most luxurious type of Iranian barberry which is the most exported, to many countries.
The largest volume of exports of this product is to European countries and some Asian countries, and its consumption is usually in the food and medicine.

This type is supplied to market, 2-6 months after the first harvest because its production process is longer. But has a better red color than other types.

The production process of puffy Barberry is such that hanging branches of cut barberry (just like grape clusters for raisin production) to dry. This process requires a very large space to flow air through the branches and the moisture between the clusters is eliminated and to prevent the barberries from rotting. Since this barberry is not exposed to sunlight and hot air flow, they retain their natural red color.
Puffy Barberry, due to its quality and its natural red color, is considered as an exported barberry.

After separating the dried barberries, they are ready to be processed. Generally, in this separation, they are full of thorns, leaves, and branches, and just like the shiny barberry type, it still needs to be cleaned.

After the first cleaning which the branches, thorns and leaves of the product are separated from the product, they must be sorted and ready to go to the market.
In order to supply the product, it should be noted that the appropriate packaging of barberry in bulk should be used to prevent them from infestation and rotting.

Quality of shiny barberry is lower than puffy barberry.
Shiny barberry just like puffy barberry, is used for making food tastier, and sometimes barberry juice is also made from this product.
The barberry production process begins immediately after harvesting in March. For this purpose, the barberries are placed on a surface while remaining on the branches, exposed to direct sunlight, to dry. To obtain a monotonic product, they must constantly be turned over. This will prevent them from rotting.

Then they must be wined soaked. this means that the leaves are separated from the barberries by the wind in the natural environment or artificially created. After that, the barberries are kept, in cartons with no plastic or laminate, and placed in a cold place and away from the sunlight for further processing.
This type of barberry has lower quality than other types of barberry, but it has more customers as it is cheaper.

Its color is more intense and different from two other types.

Together, these compounds help regulate your blood sugar levels, helping diabetics to keep their condition under control.

persian lime
Dried lime, also known as: black lime; noomi basra (Iraq); limoo amani (Iran); and loomi (Oman), is a lime that has lost its water content, usually after having spent a majority of its drying time in the sun. They are used whole, sliced, or ground, as a spice in Middle Eastern dishes.

Dried “lemons” are used to flavor tajines and other stews, soups, fish, grilled meats or vegetables. They can be put directly into the cooking water of rice, chickpeas or lentils. Their flavor is more subtle than that of candied lemons: they give a slight bitterness to the dish.

Whole Persian Limes, also known as Limu Omani, are small limes, similar in size to Key limes from Mexico, that have been boiled in salt brine and left to air-dry in the sun. Although not the prettiest of dried spices, whole Persian limes add an exotic complexity to Middle Eastern style food. About the size of a golf ball, the brined and dried limes turn dark brown after going through the fermentation and drying process. Because the juice has been dried out, the whole Persian limes are lightweight and have a wrinkled appearance to them. When dried, the limes turn various shades of brown, and when cut in half, the dried limes are quite dark inside, and you can still see the membranes and structure of the fruit.
Whole Persian limes are used primarily in Middle Eastern cooking. First developed in the country of Oman, thus the name Limu Omani, dried limes are essential in food dishes of Israel, Iran, Iraq, other Middle Eastern Gulf states, and are occasionally seen in Northern Indian cuisine. Previously unknown to American cooks, dried limes are beginning to gain in popularity as cooks discover the wonderfully sweet, sour, and tangy addition that whole Persian limes can add to dishes. Due to the brining process, the whole dried limes have a slightly fermented taste to them as well as sweet and sour flavors. In traditional Middle Eastern cooking, the whole dried limes are simply washed well, and then small holes are pierced into and through the dried skin. These dried limes are then added to soups, meat stews, and tagines. Two or three of the dried limes are added whole to the pot, and as the juices from the other vegetables, meats and spices, sluice through the lime, the sweet, tangy flavors combine with the stew. Whole Persian limes can also be added to the cooking liquid when making rice. The acidity and flavor profile of whole Persian limes lends well to lighter stews that have chicken or fish, as well as adding a zesty flavor to simpler legume dishes that have lentils or chickpeas.
Because Persian limes have thicker skins than Key limes, they are more adaptable to a variety of growing conditions. The trees often grow up to 15-20 feet and have nearly thornless, widespread, drooping branches. The trees generally begin to flower in January and have a slightly purple hue to them. The Persian limes are bright green, to begin with, and when fully ripe, turn a more pale-yellow. They generally have no seeds or very few seeds. Because of the lack of seeds, most Persian limes are grafted onto rough lemon, sweet orange, and grapefruit trees. The limes begin to mature around May and can be harvested through the fall, with the peak of the season being from July through September. Many backyard gardeners have success growing Persian lime trees in pots and containers. They can be planted in rich, loamy soil, or if growing in pots, half of a whiskey or wine barrel makes a suitable container. The trees will need to be watered about 1-2 times per week. If a cold snap is imminent, the trees must be protected from frost with a burlap or cloth cover.
