These leeks were not good quality. There were 3 in the pack, 2 small and 1 large. The large one was horrible, slimy and squidgy. Therefore. I was unable to use it which left me short for the soup I was making. It could be seen from the outer packaging that it was not good.
Good flavour, misleading picture
The picture shows four leeks, but the pack had only two in it. maybe the correct weight, bu the picture is (deliberately) misleading. Th equality was quite good.
Delicious tender leeks.
I've always found these packaged leeks a really good quality product. There is not a lot of waste and they are tender and delicious in a leek and stilton tart or soup. I saute them in butter and oil with some water.
Wet, dirty green leeks!!
I was extremely disappointed with the condition of these leeks received in my Click & Collect order. They were practically all green, dirty & wet. Not at all very fresh looking. I would never have picked them if shopping in-store. I always order leeks every shop & have never had a problem before.
Mostly muddy leaves
I don't know where Tesco source their leeks from, but clearly it is not the same place as other stores. They are consistently mostly leaf, but this week was the worst - about 2-3" at most of white leek and the rest was dark, hard and extremely muddy splayed leaves, including a big chunk of mud! Takes ages to prepare to ensure all the mud has gone and is very wasteful, as the dark leaves are nowhere near as pleasant as the tender white part. These really should not pass Tesco quality control measures. I guess I will need have the inconvenience of going to another store to buy nice trimmed leeks until Tesco sort this out.
Fake reviews again.
Lets play spot the fake reviews. Leeks are not too bad, but 1 star for yet more fake reviews.
Stock pickers can’t count!
I asked for a minimum of 3 in a pack, and as usual got two old packed leeks.

Usually good quality, but they arrived looking very sad with brown ends and rather bendy. With no date on package I suspect they’d been knocking around for a while. If I’d been in store myself I would have left them on the shelf, but my attention wasn’t drawn to them by the driver or on the invoice. Disappointed these were allowed to be sent out.
Two thirds of the length of each leek was tough, inedible, dark green leaves. From a 500 g packet, there was only 145g of usable vegetable. The leeks were very wet inside the package. Will never order again.
Took forever to clean, and much was wasted. Once cooked, what was left was very nice
