Lincolnshire shallots produced in the Netherlands?
"Our shallots come from trusted growers across the UK. One of our growers, the Kitchen family, have been growing Shallots for Tesco in the light, sandy soils of their north Lincolnshire farm for over 25 years.".... ...."Produce of The Netherlands"?
Went in store and bought two packets for pickling. English grown shallots. Skinned them when I got home and all of them were firm and fresh. I didn’t have to throw any away. I have been pickling home grown and shop bought produce for several years and the ones I bought today were good quality. That was my experience judging by the reviews other people have had different experiences. My only advice would be to go in store and personally check them to see if they are firm and in good condition before buying.
Should be put on rubbish dump
Very poor quality, damaged and rotten. If this product is from EU, we do not need them.
Mouldy had to throw most away
Click and collect order and used them the day after collecting to find most of them mouldy so had to throw them away. You could actually see some of the mouldy ones through the packet, so why were they picked. Use by dates need to be on some items as they are obviously kept on shelves a lot longer than they should be. Therefore a waste of money and food. I agree with other reviews so come on Tesco please sort as this seems to be a problem that lots of your customers are experiencing..
Phew! What a smell when I cut into the first one. I am still "tasting" this and am off to have a cup of tea in the hope that I will clear this odor! It was rotten right through and slimy.
This bag of shallots are mostly rotten. Never had a veg delivery quite this nasty. There seems to be no way to directly complain about such things now. Disappointed not to be able to use any of them, they were intended to be used, some of them anyway, in a casserole tonight. But they are black and slimy inside. I would post a photo if I could.
Rotting, disguised by excessive layers of brown skin. Never had problems with shallots I have grown or bought elsewhere.
Might I suggest, after extolling the qualities of your North Lincolnshire growers, that stating 'Produce of the Netherlands' somewhat detracts from its veracity!
Very great flavour
Very great flavour
I was a little hesitant to get these as the reviews aren't great. but, I have been pleasantly surprised. Fresh, taste good and value for money. I am hoping this is the standard and that I wasn't just lucky that I got a good bag as I do want to purchase again. They are very tasty.
