French Bean Cobra


SKU: 380113 Category:


A favourite  amongst vegetable growers, climbing French bean 'Cobra' is quite possibly the tastiest there is, and it has wonderful mauve flowers too!
Cropping continuously over a long season from July, you'll get heavy crops of stringless green pods 18cm (7in) long that have exceptionally good flavour.
Delicious al dente, and packed full of vitamins A and K, minerals and fibre, and they freeze very well too, so you can enjoy your home grown crop into next year.
Being a climbing French bean, 'Cobra' will require a sturdy support that's at least 6ft tall. Cane wigwams are traditionally used, made by placing four or five canes 6 inches apart around the plant, tied together at the top to give a strong structure that's an attractive feature in the vegetable garden, and works well if you're growing your beans in pots too. If you're growing long rows of beans, place canes 6 inches apart either side of the row and tie them to a horizontal cane at the top to make a tent shape. After a little help, your beans will twine their way naturally over the support.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence and enjoy a top quality harvest.
Supplied as 6 plug plants, ready for growing on or planting. Growing to 2m (6½ft), with beans ready to harvest from June to September.
