Climbing French Beans – Cobra (Organic)

£3.10£5.80

Prolific and reliable climbing bean with stringless pods of marvelous taste. Cobra is an extremely popular and very reliable French bean variety and an RHS Award of Garden Merit winner. It’s got everything you’ll want from a bean. It produces an early crop of stringless round green pods that have the most delicious flavour.

The showy violet-purple flowers will stand out in your garden and you’ll be surprised at how long your beans will keep coming.

We love them cooked and tossed in vinaigrette when still warm, adding raw onions and a touch of grain mustard.

Climbing French Beans tips: Direct sow from May until the beginning of June, when the soil has warmed up. If sown when the soil is too cold and/or wet the beans may rot. We recommend building the climbing structure first (poles distanced 65cm between rows and 40cm within the row) and then planting four beans at the base of each pole 4cm deep. This way you will know exactly where the beans have been planted and also you will not damage the roots when building the structure.
