French beans are easier to grow than runner beans, and produce lovely, tasty, tender pods. Cobra is a very reliable climbing French bean and a prolific cropper. It produces heavy crops of long, smooth, straight, stringless, well-flavoured pods up to 18cm (7in) long over a long period. It starts producing pods earlier in the year than most other varieties too.
The pale violet flowers are very pretty, so it can even be grown in the ornamental garden, as well as the veg garden.
This variety, together with all the other varieties in our RHS AGM Veg Seed Collection, has been awarded the prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society. Such plants have been awarded this accolade after testing and assessment by the society, and is only given to plants that have proved to have excellent garden performance and worth growing.
