When to pick

Harvest the central flower head when it is no bigger than your hand, and the buds are tight. Do not leave until the flowers open. Side shoots can be cooked as individual spears.

Eat and store fresh

Broccoli can be stored in a cool place or in the fridge for up to 5 days. Eat before yellowing appears.

Freezing options

Wash, divide into florets, blanch for 2 minutes, cool, and freeze for up to 12 months.
