What to look out for

When buying broccoli look for bright green colours, usually with no yellow, brown, grey, or black spots. The florets of the broccoli should be tight and nicely closed. The cut ends, should be fresh, moist, and with a white/green colour.

Try to avoid cut ends that look cracked, dried or with yellow colour.
