Broccoli contains goitrogens that interfere with thyroid activity and could damage the liver and kidneys.  Therefore, although Broccoli is not actually toxic, we would advise you not to feed it to your tortoise.

The flowers of the Broccoli plant are yellowish-green when they open out of the green flower heads. 
In the case of Purple Sprouting Broccoli the pale yellow flowers will emerge from the purple flower heads.
