" withered, woody and disgusting".

On the label, it says "Fresh, tender and succulent", I would say " withered, woody and disgusting". I steamed them and as they looked even worse , tasted them and decided to bin them instead of putting everybody off green beans.

I was forewarned that Ocado was substituting the regular beans for the organic version & I read some reviews,many of which were bad,but I thought that they were organic,produced with love, so how bad could they be ? Unfortunately I did not inspect them before the driver left & then I discovered just how bad they could be just by looking at them. I grow my own beans in summer & I would have discarded these for compost as they should have been picked much earlier. But the reason I'm so annoyed is not that Ocado does not seem to read reviews properly,but that it airfreights dubious produce from Egypt to satisfy a self indulgent desire for "organic" food at the expense of the planet. These things should have been composted in Egypt, not my kitchen.

Mouldy every time

Almost every time I buy these there is one or two going mouldy which spreads if you don't get it early. Puts me off using the rest.
