Have bought these often and have never had any bad ones. Even in the plastic bag they last over a week.

Always Amazed by Excellent Quality Produce

Perhaps we are just lucky, but always have been of highest quality and freshness. Never mouldy or rotten. Lasts for a long time - well over a week in a breathable fabric bag in a dark cupboard. Even after this time, no black bits, furry bits, green or shoots.
