not up to standard I would expect
Quality very poor at the moment. Pack just delivered had one with a badly split skin so not hygienic to eat. The other two were very soft with dull skin and dark patches and clearly past their best. I might have risked eating them if they had a best before date . I have thrown them away. I love courgettes, but not these.
Very unreliable quality
I buy four packets of these each week, the quality ranges from beautifully fresh and crisp to old, spongy and rotting. Three weeks ago I threw away all four packets after sorting through for anything salvageable but they were spongy and covered with spots of decay plus two had spilt open. They were appalling. Over the past two weeks I have had to throw one packet away from each delivery, use the rest sooner than I wanted and cut the skins off due to the rotting spots and spongy ends. I also grow my own, it takes weeks for a healthy courgette to show any sign of ageing let alone rot so these are diseased, have been in stock a long time or are not storing well in sealed bags. I would buy them loose which tend to be more reliable but several times I have been delivered far less than I ordered.
Too many times I have ordered these courgettes and found them to be bitter and inedible. Last time I ordered, the courgettes were old and starting to yellow in places as well. I was perhaps expecting the ones in the packets to be better preserved but I only now buy courgettes from Tesco loose which tend to be better.
Unacceptable quality by any reasonable standards
I ordered just one this week as a top up on existing stock. It looked as if it was the last one in the store and then found on the floor behind the shelving ! It had the texture of an uncooked pork sausage and was no bigger in size. Disgusting ! Must do better please Tesco
These never last the advertised 1+ weeks. Within 7
These never last the advertised 1+ weeks. Within 7 days they turn mouldy and wet. If you're planning to use them straight away they are fine, but they don't last.
For home delivery pickers pick the worse ones
If you can choose your own should be ok, but when left to the pickers for delivery you can guarantee that they will be gnarled, eaten, damaged and dried out.
Never had a problem with these, if you want courgettes then...these are decent courgettes.
Courgettes absolutely fine but where’s the option to buy them loose? I don’t need a bag or net
Mouldy, Soggy Courgettes
Went to use these within 48 hours of receiving my shopping order - one was mouldy the other two were soggy. No date on packet (seems to be the case with a lot of fresh produce nowadays!!! )so I expect they were already past their sell by date when I received them. In the bin they went - every little helps!
