Is it harmful to eat broccoli if it has bolted?
A blind couple from church called and asked me to come check out their garden. They were told they couldn't harvest the broccoli because it had bloomed. I have never grown any myself so I advised them to wait until I could find out for them. They are very good people but are taken advantage of due to their kindness and disabilities. I just want to make sure they are not being swindled out for their plentiful growth. Thank you in advance for your time and help.
The broccoli is not harmful -- the part we normally eat is just the unopened flowers -- but it doesn't taste very good. Here's an article on growing broccoli: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/broccoli/bolting-broccoli-growing-broccoli-in-hot-weather.htm
You may have time to help them grow another crop.
