Good Morning!

This is a message to all Buyer’s Group members —

If your broccoli head has small yellow buds it may not taste as good as it could. When we received it Wednesday night it was fine, but as the day progressed yesterday I noticed it changing.  This is a change we have witnessed at our farm in broccoli in cold storage that is nearing its ‘expiration’ date, the date at which its quality begins to diminish.

Broccoli with yellow buds should not make you sick, it just won’t taste as good as it could, and probably won’t keep in your fridge.  Its on the down-side of its life-cycle.  We like our produce at its peak–we want to deliver you produce at its peak, so we will replace the broccoli next time around!
