I wouldn't trust these, i got some as my toddler loves strawberries and was hassling for them but when we got home didn't want them, then over a week later they still looked exactly the same. no mould or anything

They must coat them in varnish or some dodgy chemicals

Beg to differ, BIG TIME ! (_;)
Most foreign fruit that is sold in UK has a FAR taste better than fruit from grown here ...

I know real taste as I have lived for more than 20 years, in a tropical country where local fruit tastes as it should, I can defintely say fruit grown in UK, doesnt compare to fruit real taste/flavour... 8)

While some of that may be true, strawberries are not even REMOTELY a tropical fruit! None of the imports to this country are grown there, more are usually from Mediterranean-type climates, often in their winter when it would be too cold here. The original fruits are more an ALPINE plant!

Traditionally grown traditional varieties from Britain USED to be fantastic, although they had a short growing season of about 6 weeks, and are something the under 35's or 40's would not even have tasted before as they are now long gone :-(

It's simply the modern varieties grown - they are grown for long growing season, long shelf life and resistance to mould, unfortunate there has been no taste bred in, and they could be granny smiths' apples or wet balsa wood for all the texture and taste they have :-(

Why waste a pound, when it's possible to get,say - a very nice bag of apples for that price which actually taste something like they are meant to taste, ie. apples and are probably SOFTER too!

Total rubbish..

English strawberries grown here in June/July are the best tasting strawberries in the world.

We the consumer are our own worse enemy demanding fruit out of season.

Take plums..rock hard and tasteless,yet wait until they are in season here late August/September and they are delicious.

We grow the finest apples in the world and you buy some English conference pears when in season..beautiful

Thanks for that as I never know when fruits are in season and it always ends up in the bin as it's too hard. Is there any way of knowing if fruit will be sweet and soft before you buy it? I love plums, peaches, pears, nectarines, pineapples etc but wish I knew how to tell?

I was not focusing on strawberries only, when I mentioned tropical, but just meaning that sometimes tropical weather does a lot for the flavour..

I agree that all processes to keep fruit alive in shelves kill whatever little flavour they had in the 1st place..

Saying the best in the world, is a generalization that comes from your personal opinion. For me they are not at all, so it's just a question of different opinions regarding fruit flavour in UK.

What I have tasted outside here, in fruit/vegetables flavour doesnt compare to what I get in supermarkets here, but sometimes I am lucky enough to get great apples from Spain, delicious butternut squash from Africa, Argentina, Brazil, etc.

There's just something monumentally wrong with fruit and veg that rack up more Airmiles than I do in a year. :(

With the current economic climate there's even more reason to support UK trade, and bllx to some farmer/business thousands of miles away.

Actually to be fair to Asda, the ones we had "came from Egypt (_;)" were fairly sweet (at room temperature and tasted fine). Kids needed them in school recipe.

Also agree, generally the ones we pick locally (from P-Y-O farms near us) do taste delicious and some varieties sweeter than others. Our local P-Y-O farm usually grows about 3 different varieties and depending on weather are ready to be picked from as early as June. If you're ever in West Sussex I can recommend some good P-Y-O 8)

I pointed it out to someone, they didn't care, they were all still there when I left.
