Correspondingly, is it OK to eat broccoli with black spots?
Broccoli should be consumed within 2-3 days. If the broccoli was rinsed prior to refrigeration then the washing likely contributed to the development of mold. To clarify, the black spots are okay to eat as long as the broccoli hasn't been in the fridge too long?
Also, how can you tell broccoli has gone bad? When broccoli is starting to go bad the smell will intensify, that's usually the first sign. At about the same time you will notice a color change as the bright green color begins to turn yellow and it's crisp texture will become limp.
Keeping this in consideration, is it OK to eat broccoli with brown spots?
It's not bad in a way that it will make you sick, but its taste won't be that great. If there are some small black or brown spots on the broccoli head, cut them out. When it comes to sure-signs of raw broccoli being rotten, bad smell is the first one.
Can I eat slightly moldy broccoli?
In a Nutshell If moldy, or black spots are small, cut them off. If they are all over the broccoli head, discard it. Yellow broccoli is okay to eat, but usually tastes bitter, and in most cases, you'd want to throw it out. If only some florets started to turn yellow, cut them out, and use the rest.
