Rubbish quality. Already limp and rancid when it arrived. The few leaves I did salvage had an awful bitter taste anyway. My pack was Kenyan in origin. Avoid like the plague!

Opened it on the day of delivery and it was all wet and mushy! Smell was horrible. Went straight into the bin.
Dreadful bitter basil
This basil is dreadful this time ! So bitter can't use it at all, it is not the usual standard I can't get the awful taste from my mouth ! Had to throw it away ! I will not buy again.

Won't be buying this Basil again, it had such an overpowering flavour it ruined our meal
Store this correctly
Really wilted and unusable. Looked like it had been kept somewhere too cold. Went in the bin.
Out of the whole bag i was only to use about 6 or 7 leaves, they were all rotting. Not good!!
Bought it twice recently via click and collect. The first pack was dreadful and the whole lot went in the bin. I hoped it was a one off and bought a second pack a week or two later. Again, poor quality. I needed all of it for my recipe but just about to manage to salvage a few leaves which weren’t brilliant but better than nothing. In both cases the use by dates were a couple of days after purchase. I won’t be buying this or any of the other cut herbs in future as I had the same experience with thyme.
Basil goes in everything now
Fresh basil doesn't keep long. I find that freezing it is the best way to keep it longer and it's as fresh as when it first arrived.
Out of date
This arrived this evening 26/05/20 at 21.00pm with a use by date of 26/05/20. Now unless I was going to whip up a lasagne in a few hours the evening after already eaten, this (already brown) Basil, was useless. Can't say I'm a happy customer. Especially as this is advertised as a 2+ day usage. By my standards 3hrs isn't 2+ days.
I was disappointed because it expired the next day
I was disappointed because it expired the next day after I received. Even though, the day that I got my delivery, it already bad, I have to cook the day it was delivered, even though I can only use less than half, never buy it again.
