"Cherokee Trail of Tears" beans

These have turned out to be a very versatile bean. You can eat them as a green bean or you can let them ripen for a black bean. This is the first year I've grown them. I'll plan on growing them again next year.

Beans, in general, are very helpful. No tying tomatoes!

Do I understand you correctly; you co-plant tomato sand these, so that the beans support the tomato plants? Interesting idea if so.

Yes. A support system such as bamboo or wire screen is still needed. The beans wrap themselves around both, tying the tomato plants to the support system. Here's a photo showing the beginning of the process.
