I am harvested by hand and with the greatest of care. At the end, I’m the only thing left - the pure berry. Refreshingly acidic, extremely delicious and unbelievably healthy.
I am related to Berberis, which also grows in Germany as an ornamental shrub. However, I am much more exotic as I come from distant Persia.
I don’t have any bothersome pips. You can enjoy me straight away – even on my own, as a delicious snack.
Thanks to my red colour, you can identify the bushes on which I grow from a long distance away. The brighter my red colour, the higher my quality.
I’ll bet you anything that my refreshingly acidic flavour surprises you. You won’t be able to stop gobbling me up!
After being harvested, I enjoy the warm climate of my home in Persia for a little while longer and let the sun kiss me until I am packaged.
Origin and production
Barberries grow on high, densely laden bushes in their homeland of Persia, and are identified from a distance thanks to their bright red colour. There, they are gently harvested by hand and with the greatest of care. Bothersome leaves and branches are also removed by hand.
To enable barberries to unfurl their full flavour and retain their positive properties, they are dried gently in the sun. This means they can be transported well and used over a longer period of time. You can tell whether the quality is right by the bold colour. Juicy, sour, delicious and unbelievably healthy.
