The Cobra pole bean (a French climbing bean) was a stand-out in our green pole bean trial, bearing loads of straight, attractive, 7” pods all summer long. We eat all the tasty and tender fresh beans we can, and there’s still plenty of Cobra beans for canning or freezing. Be sure and give this climber plenty of support, as it will happily grow up to 6’ tall. We receive rave reviews for our Cobra pole bean from growers nationwide, citing its productivity and remarkably long harvest season.
