Default Silly question about climbing french beans:

How tall do they grow, please?
More accurately, how tall should the supports be for a row of 'Cobra'?

Treat them much the same as runner beans - i.e. grow them up 6ft. canes
or mesh etc. When they reach the top, they can either be pinched out,
when they will make several side-shoots, or they can be trained
laterally. Keep picking the beans young, many more will come that way
than if they are left on to go stringy.

Thank you!
