I have never heard of a climbing soybean, but did work at one time with a
tall version ( about 40 inches) which should be an excellent companion to
corn, if you are careful to let the corn get the headstart. Adzuki beans
are excellent, there is a climbing variety, and it is quick to produce.
There is even a perennial vining one, which you can grow on fences, go out
in the morning and collect a handful for lunch whenever you feel like it...
I also like a lab-lab which we have here which is white. It is delicious as
a green bean with herbs and butter, or as salad. But even the red one
could be a good candidate...
