This has been my usual go-to garlic buy for ages as it's usually fresh, firm, and fragrant. However, the last 3 purchases have been poor quality. I've had to cut away up to a third each time as there have been rotten bits on the bulbs and they have been dry and starting to shrivel. Won't buy again.
Rubbish, brought from supermarket used on the same day and it was brown and dried ,not fresh at all, I couldn’t even press it through my garlic presser. Tesco nee to sort there suppliers out.
Came from China - rather dried up. Surely plenty
Came from China - rather dried up. Surely plenty of garlic in Spain, France or Isle of Wight.
Horrible, from CHINA!
Does not taste or smell like a real garlic. Well, country of origin: CHINA....Can you start selling UK or at least EU garlic??
Made in China
These come from China! How many airmiles have these garlic travelled to get here? Come on Tesco, there are other farmers closer to UK that grow excellent garlic - buy local.
Not lasting very long, lately.
Doesn't smell like garlic or indeed anything else!
Tesco large garlic used to be nice, but the last two I bought were absolutely awful and went straight in the bin. Wish I'd read the reviews below before buying. Won't be buying again. Would rate 0 points if I could.
Used to be Spanish garlic which were OK quality. Now they're from China, flabby and quick to rot.
Often dry and old cloves in the bulb
Easier to use than the smaller clove 3-in-a-bag bulbs. However, often the cloves in the larger bulbs are dry and feel quite old as if they have been stored for quite a long time, which is disappointing. I usually get through around 1 bulb a week so they are not hanging around for long. It doesn't seem to make any difference whether I store bulbs in the fridge or in a pot in the kitchen. It is such an important ingredient in cooking and the quality of bulbs makes a big difference to the final dish.
