Typically, black spots would indicate mold. Generally, black mold is toxic.

I'd like to ask you a few more questions, though. Is this fresh broccoli? How has it been stored? For instance, inside a plastic bag in the refrigerator? How long has it been stored? If you could reply or call me at 541-548-6088 we might be able to figure out how to prevent this from occurring again.
