Robbie’s Produce Tips: Organic Broccoli
- Feel for a firm, tight head
- Look for deep green florets
- Look for lively green leaves and firm, thin stalks. Thick stalks will be woody and are a sign of over maturity.
- To store, mist the heads, wrap loosely in damp paper towels, and refrigerate. It will keep fresh for several days.
- The stalks and stems of the broccoli are edible, too. They cook in the same amount of time if you peel the outer skin.
