How long does broccoli last?

3-5days is typically what I get from google, but mines been in the fridge for over a week, 10days, and is perfectly fine.

Does anyone know the correct answer about how long broccoli last?

  1. Until it looks scary! When it loses its crispness I make soup out of it.

    1. re: roux42

      Once the crown/florets start to discolor to a lighter shade of green......or yellow.....the broccoli is no longer any good.

    2. It does depend on how fresh it is. I have crowns from the farmer's market that will keep in the crisper drawer of the fridge for 10-14 before looking tired. OTOH supermarket purchased crowns often start to go after seven days or less.
