Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit
With attractive purple flowers
Produces huge deliciously tender and tasty crops of exceptional quality beans.
With lovely violet flowers too this is a vegetable beautiful enough for any flower border – making it just perfect for pretty and productive gardens.
Pods grow up to 20cm (8in) long and are satisfyingly stringless. You can grow climbing French Bean Cobra like a runner bean plant. This is great if you like vertical gardening and you are short of space.
If you fancy an earlier crop grow Cobra under glass. That extra bit of warmth and protection will bring it into growth sooner.
