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.
Total waste of money
Complete waste of money. Delivered Sunday, put straight in to fridge. Got out to use on Wednesday and nearly all were mouldy. Have examined packaging closely and no best before date on there.
Do not recommend
Home delivery slot 8-9pm 21st June and carrots had a best before 22nd date. They are dry, shrivelled and some are even mouldy - my last order was exactly the same but I thought it was a one off. I will not order again and do not recommend this product.
The carrots were at their sell by date and not at all fresh, very disappointed
Impossible to cook and totally inedible.
Roasted in my usual way with olive oil, cumin seeds and honey but after an hour they were still rock hard. Tried to finish them off in the microwave but it didn't make any difference, still rock hard and totally inedible, chucked them in the bin. Never had this problem before with any other fresh carrots, very disappointing.
Only buy if you like huge Chantenay carrots
These were ordered for home delivery Chantenay carrots are normally small and therefore more tasty because they are cooked whole ... these were huge and had to be cut to cook .. might as well have bought normal size carrots at half the cost
Do not order for delivery
Ordered 27th May (delivery). Have very short code (28th May) notified two other items which were short code that I could keep or reject - I kept as they were freezable. Most of these carrots were rotten (over half). Had to throw away. Would definitely not recommend (2nd time this has happened).
I had to throw half of them away as they were moul
