I've grown Cordoba (French Beans) in summer 2007. It has been a very wet summer..When most crop failed in my neighborhood because it has been to wet..Cordoba did great! Healthy plants and nice juicy sweet pods..large crop. I could pick them small enough like a real thin French Bean, however they kept tasty even more fat when it was to rainy to go outside to pick them in time.
