Description / Cobra Pole Bean Seeds

Days to Maturity: 80 from direct sow

This pole bean stands out from all others the moment it opens its first flowers. Violet-purple and very showy, they add beauty to the veggie patch . . . and then they're followed by a long, long, season of delectable beans.

Cobra is a French climbing type with straight, stringless, round pods reaching 7 inches long. (Actually, they will grow longer than that, but pick them at 7 inches for best flavor and to encourage another fruit set.) The flavor is tender, sweet, and utterly addictive. And that's good, because you're going to have plenty to eat fresh, as well as have some for winter.

Expect this pole bean to reach 5 to 6 feet high. It's a great choice for a Three Sisters planting, and makes a nice addition to the flowering annual bed as well as the vegetable garden. Give it something sturdy to climb and get ready to start picking.

Direct sow the seeds into the warm spring soil after all danger of frost has passed, setting the seeds about 2 inches below the soil line and covering well. (Be sure to plant extra for the birds—they will take their share whether you want them to or not.) Thin the seedlings to 6 to 8 inches apart, and begin training them up a pole or other support from a young age. If picked promptly, the crop should continue through fall, until nipped back by cold weather.

Pkt is 2 oz. (approx. 150 seeds)

tasty beans
Review by Cheryl H.
I love these beans, I buy them every year. They are not stringy, they taste good, and are prolific producers.

Great beans!
Review by Kris Hazelbaker
I love this bean - flavor, productivity, quality of the beans, ease of picking. I had been disappointed in other, standard, beans that seemed to develop strings if not picked at the perfect time. These beans stay tender and flavorful on the vine for several days. I freeze mine, as well as eating them fresh, and they are great for freezing.

Bean - a - rific!
Review by Patricia
Due to heavy clay soil here in northern Wisconsin, we grow everything in raised beds. Our springs are totally unpredictable - snow in May or 80+ degree days. The summer of 2021 was a challenge but the Cobra beans performed beautifully - wonderful germination and steady growth as they climbed the wire supports. Taste was excellent and daily picking meant for a very long supply - well into late September (for us a miracle!) For all those reasons, I have ordered more for 2022. Thank you Park Seed for offering this variety.

best green bean
Review by Carry on Gardener,
This is the third year I've grown Cobra beans. I would not waste my time or the space on any other. Unfortunately this year groundhogs, despite my fence, discovered them and I will be having very few beans this summer. The plants continued to try to produce, still find regrowth. The twenty or so beans we had were delicious as expected.

Best beans ever!
Review by Colleen Plichta
I have grown Cobra beans for years, so happy Park had them after my local source didn't get them anymore. Zone 5, produces for months. Freeze beautifully, taste great fresh. Will never grow any other variety

My new standard...no more Blue Lakes
Review by Jim
I grew these in 2017 and found that they meet all of my requirements. o-they taste great but not the traditional green bean flavor found in Blue Lake o-they can wait on the vine four to five days before being picked and are still tender and flavorful unlike Blue Lake which becomes hollow and pithy. o- Highly productive o- and my main thing is that they hold up to pressure canning. I get no difference in texture or flavor between Cobra and Blue Lake. we're still eating last beans canned in 2017 and they're delicious...low sodium and a chuck of ham in the jar.

Best pole bean around!
Review by Ann
I had grown these for a couple of years and loved them. When my local source was no longer available I was very happy to find them at Park. They crop early and go for months. I still pick every day and it's the middle of October. Beautiful long fleshy beans.

Cobra Beans
Review by Joey Wolf
I grew these 2 years ago, that I purchased from another source. Last year I decided to economize and bought both Blue Lake and Ky Wonder climbing beans......never again. COBRA is my bean of choice. We were still harvesting them up to frost; a consistant steady harvest. I need another trellis, so I can have some to can.
