I don't mind the attached earth but oh my it was stringy and very green.
Limp and bendy - very poor BBE date
Delivered afternoon of 16th with a Best Before of 17th. Strangely the celery was in two pieces, probably to make up the weight. One lot was just about edible, but only just. The other was so limp the stalks bent right over when holding the whole thing at the base (I have a photo). Inedible!
Ok for cooking, not for eating raw
Ok when it's English, but the Spanish celery has been stringy and with little taste. Ok for cooking, e.g. in a stock with other veg., but not for eating raw.
Had to throw half away
Usually okay, the latest bunch had brown marks on the inside on half of the stems, which had to be thrown away. It was also a smaller bunch than usual.
Sweet tasting celery
This was the best celery I have tasted in a very long time. I hope this continues. Worth paying the extra.
Depends on what picker you have. When turned up and within best before date it's great compared to arriving on best before date where it was limp so thrown away.
I buy this regularly, it is crisp and stringless and keeps very well in the fresh produce drawer of the fridge.
Fresh and crisp.
Nice and crisp. I usually buy celery hearts but they have not been available so have twice bought these and been pleased wuth the quality.
Disappointing to find it bad on the inside
Looked fine from the outside but when the stalks were taken off the first two layers had brown bad marks inside them even though they were three days before their use by date and celery usually keeps for ages after its use by.
I still got some
