Three stars is my average rating for this product,
Three stars is my average rating for this product, when its good it deserves 5*, when bad 1*, this is my last winter purchase as some suggest it maybe a seasonal issue. The longevity in the fridge has been very good but the woody nature is simply inedible.
Woody and unpleasant
This samphire was really woody and unpleasant. It's the second time we have experienced this with Tesco samphire. Maybe it's the luck of the draw but if so we have been unlucky two out of three times.
Well below usual standard
Very poor quality. Not to usual standard. Unpleasant stringy parts. Perhaps asking too much at this time of the year.
Tasty and healthy!

Buy local produce, please
This is a good quality product, but I notice the blurb says "produce of..." with no country named. In fact it's from Israel. This may mean it's from illegally occupied Palestinian territories. In any case, samphire is native to British coasts. A lot comes from Cornwall, for example. So why does Tesco import "Israeli" produce when it's growing in their own back garden?
Very hard stalks
We bought this to have with baked salmon, as one of our fav meals - there were soOO! Many hard white stalks inside that we thought they were bones from the fish - not so! Never experienced with buying Samphire before. Maybe was just this batch.
Not of the usual or expected standard.
Usually very nice indeed but the last order was very hard and very "stringy"......not nice at all. Seasonal? Dunno.
Last purchase was very woody and 50% inedible ! Cl
Last purchase was very woody and 50% inedible ! Click & Collect so too much hassle to return item to store.
Blessed by the Samphire!
It tasted really nice and crunchy. I boiled it first before frying with olive oil. We had it as side with rib-eye steak. We really enjoyed it and definetely buy again. Good value for money!!!
What a disappointment
Earlier in the year you would have got 4 or 5 stars, however the last two times I bought it the samphire was inedible - it was very hard and stringy. I was totally disappointed, so have bought it no longer.
