Broccoli loses all of its health advantages when it gets bad, and it may even be hazardous.
The color, smell, mold, or firmness of your broccoli indicate whether or not it’s safe to eat.
The color of the broccoli is the first indicator that it has gone rotten. If you notice florets of broccoli have turned a yellowish color, this indicates that the food has been spoilt.
Mold may change the vegetable’s color to a yellowish hue or cause uneven growth patterns. If you see mold on your broccoli, toss it out and don’t eat it.
Avoid eating the broccoli if you see it has become white or has a slimy feel since this indicates putrefaction, and it should be thrown away.
If the broccoli has a sore or foul odor, it’s over its expiration date and should be thrown out.
1. It’s become yellow or brown.
2. Is it bitter or sour in the nose?

Broccoli’s shelf life is also essential to note so that you can keep it fresh and eat it when it’s ready
Refrigeration is the preferred method of storing fresh broccoli.
Freezing raw broccoli is the best option for soup or other prepared food.
