Quality has plummeted from great to inedible.
What has happened to these packs of Chantenay carrots? These had long been a regular favourite of mine and have always been crisp and sweet, indeed sweet enough to eat as a raw snack. They were a great product - until now. Two weeks ago I ordered a pack that turned out to taste quite unpleasant. I put thIs down to a single bad batch so was prepared to try again. This second batch was also nasty. Half were beginning to rot and the others had the same poor flavour totally lacking the original sweetness.

Those saying these carrots are too small are missing the point! I buy them because they are small and therefore quicker and easier to clean and cook. Also taste great.
Nice taste, but size a problem ....
Like other reviewers a key problem here is the size. Some of the carrots are absolutely tiny and when you’re making glazed carrots in the oven you need them all to be of a similar size in order for them to cook evenly. However, the taste was good, no problems with mould at all.
These carrots are usually good, top and tail, quick rub under the tap and ready to go. But those in the last pack looked very old and discoloured with the tops going mouldy. If I hadn`t needed them that day they would have been binned. They needed a lot of peeling and knife work before they looked good enough to cook.

our last supply of this product was a complete pack of minute carrots the largest being approx 35mm long.
When cooked (I roasted them), the carrots had an unpleasant disinfectant taste. Would not recommend.

Most of the carrots in the pack were smaller than half an inch. DISGUSTING where is Tesco's quality control!
Tasty, but should be a reasonably decent size
I have bought these small carrots several times because of their lovely sweet taste, hence the 3 stars, but they should be of a reasonably uniform size as shown in the marketing picture. I usually lightly brush them with a stiff brush but the last box I received were totally unacceptable. There were at least 20 carrots in the box which were less than an inch long and some even half an inch long, so they were far too small to handle. I felt I was being fobbed off with produce that I would not have chosen if I had been able to shop for myself. Next time I will ask for a refund. The grower needs to be told that produce like this is not saleable. This is poor quality control and loyal online customers should not be sold inferior produce.
Last week bought Bartlets Chanteny carrots on open
Last week bought Bartlets Chanteny carrots on opening the pack there was a strong smell of mold but nothing visible. Tasted one raw, tasted of mold, cooked the rest of this carrot the mold taste was reduced but was still there . They are now on my compost heap.I know I could have brought them back but it would have cost as much in petrol. Had a similar problem with wax free lemons a few weeks ago, two of the three were rotten inside, I'm not sure now but I think they were organic, what a bad deal when you pay extra for supposed quality
Rock hard after cooking and bitter taste
I agree with other reviewers than these carrots are not fit for purpose. After two years of bad reviews i think time to review most of your vegetable suppliers as none seem to get good reviews. Often looks old and tired.
