Great deals, but really disappointing the amount of plastic these products are all packaged in (apart from the mangoes AFAIK!)

• Iceland have cardboard boxes for grapes.
• Broccoli should just be loose
• Pears should be loose not in bags
• Figs are tough, but im sure some kind of egg carton could protect them I mean if they can stop eggs breaking...
• Lettuces dont need to be wrapped in plastic

I find Tesco's grapes are so hit or miss.

Sometimes they're great, sometimes there's mold on them when you open the box, sometimes they're tasteless and other times they feel soft and old.

Probably 20% of the time or less they're actually really nice.

If I add them to my basket today (online) but I pick up tomorrow - Am I charged todays price or tomorrows? Currently my basket shows todays price.
Hi. The price you pay is whatever it is on the day you shop in store or receive your online shop. It doesn't matter when you list your online shop.

Dont really want to risk getting loose fruit & veg at the moment as some sick people around who want to make others sick...
The first 9 reviews online are not good for the grapes
Edit - the figs don't read well either

Look everyone! A cure for insomnia!
All things that I like eating😋
Asda grapes are always £1 and much better quality. Tesco fruit is very hit and miss.. Mostly miss.

Always wash fruits and veg, simple.

Firstly, the virus doesn’t really spread through vegetables or other surfaces it’s more person to person. Secondly just wash your veg if you’re that paranoid. No point wanting more plastic when you can just wash things with soap

This is a really common misconception that people have right now. I suggest if you have time watching the BBC programme: War on Plastic as they discuss the resurgence in single use plastics since Covid-19. bbc.co.uk/ipl…ita

The gist is that plastic can carry the virus far longer than any other kind of packaging and it is in fact counter intuitive to purchase plastic covered products right now. As other commentators have said, you're going to wash your fruit and veg anyway.

Do what you can, even one just less piece of plastic can make a difference when there are 70 million people on one island .

I generally agree with using less plastic, but that show wasn't really presenting a balanced discussion.

Loads of fruit and veg are difficult to wash properly (rinsing doesn't count) and, more importantly, plastic reducing food waste by preventing damage and/or keeping items fresher for longer.

The supermarkets appear to have used Covid 19 as an excuse to quietly suspend their plastic free initiatives. The amount of plastic with my Tesco deliveries is ridiculous!

I've heard that plastic is now considered PPE for food

Can't say I agree with you re the balanced discussion personally. For me this was shown as Hugh FW never allowed the deliberate misleading by sandwich manufacturers as well as the organisation behind the use of recycling labels to simply greenwash the situation. They are not recyclable, end of story. I only put it on to fill some time and see what they were telling people. I was pleasantly surprised by the way it was relatively objective although it does downplay the seriousness of the situation thus encouraging complacency.

I don't think single use plastics are in any way a solution to food waste. If anything they seem to have the additional negative effects of:

• Encouraging the purchase of more than people need as they have to get a whole bag and no less
• Luring people into a false sense of security about the need to wash their fruit and veg
• Further reducing the connection people have with their food by making it rather clinical

Indeed, understandably Tesco stores also initially issued single use plastic bags for free with click and collect but I think we are past that point of knowledge with Covid-19 now and I am aware of one local branch that is still continuing to provide them without encouraging return or charging for them.

If Figs were in egg cartons then people may open the lid and eat them. Eggs are raw so that stops people eating eggs from egg cartons.
wait who uses soap to wash fruit???
I second Asda grapes as well- £1 and always taste great. Never washed using soap however- dont think there is a need if produce is wrapped. Would be interested to hear other people's views though.
The last time I shopped in Asda their grapes were pretty poor, so I didn't buy, however all supermarkets have variance in their produce. They all use lots of different suppliers.

You can already choose to buy broccoli loose but that's effectively a different product line and will probably cost more than 35p for the same weight.

No thanks I don’t want my broccoli tasting of head and shoulders. I will buy the conveniently packed plastic bag option
Its Great, Tesco at its peak thought nothing of the customers, just kept hiking the prices, cucumber. £1.09 lettuce £1 until the Lidls and Aldis came in ,now Tesco seems to becoming humble, customers wont forget.

Gawd bless the Germans. Even if one doesn't shop at the discounters, we all owe them a debt of gratitude for exposing the greed of the "Big Four".
