How to grow Climbing French Bean Cobra Seeds

Planting: French beans are warm-season vegetables. Plant the seeds outdoors after the danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed up, usually in late spring or early summer. Choose a sunny spot in your garden with well-drained soil. French beans thrive in full sun, receiving at least 6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day. Prepare the soil by loosening it to a depth of about 15 to 20 centimeters. Remove any weeds and incorporate organic matter.

Sowing: Sow the seeds about 2 to 3 centimeters deep directly into the soil and space them 5 to 10 centimeters apart in rows spaced 45 to 60 centimeters apart. Alternatively, you can plant seeds in hills or raised beds. If starting indoors, sow three seeds to a 15cm pot.

Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water the plants deeply once or twice a week, depending on weather conditions.

Support: French bean plants benefit from support as they grow. Install trellises, stakes, or bean poles near the plants to provide support for the vines to climb.

Harvesting: French Bean Cobra plants typically produce slender, tender pods that are ready for harvest 50 to 60 days after planting. Harvest the beans when they are young and tender, about 10 to 15 centimeters long, by gently snapping them off the vine. To extend the harvest period, sow additional batches of French Bean Cobra seeds every 2 to 3 weeks throughout the growing season.
