Quite a lot of brown florets.

I was surprised to find a lot of this broccoli was rotten. The bits that weren't were fine though.

Rating: 1 star out of 5

passed its best

One of my favourites normally but the florets were yellow at the edges which shows that it was harvested too late. If this had been fresh i would not have bought it.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Convenient - almost like fresh

I was fully expecting to have to throw this away as I usually like my fruit and veg fresh. I was pleasantly surprised that it tastes like fresh broccoli. The only warning is that you cannot cook for too long. I cooked for 4 minutes and this was sufficient. Any longer and they would have turned to mush. I will be buying this all the time as its convenient - no chopping, and no wasting of money when the fresh one goes off.

Tasteless

Here is an example where fresh produce is best and worth the extra money.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Great value

Microwaved for the correct time and was perfect!! I would imagine any problems others may have could be due to over cooking. Will definitely buy again!
