The pods are 5 to 6 inches (13 to 15 cm) long, with up to 6 beans per pod; 60 days from seed.
The pods are cream-coloured, and almost completely covered with bright red-coloured streaks. The beans inside are similar: cream-coloured with red spots.
Coco Rubico Beans can used fresh (shelled from the pod, partially-dried or fully dried), or when harvested very young, can be eaten as green beans, pod and all.
Coco Rubico Beans were introduced in 1976 in France.
