When I was a young kid and a young adult my father bought tomato plants that had what look like monkey tails. These "monkey tails" would secure themselves to anything that they could grab on to, especially fences. They are similar to what grape vines use to secure themselves to a trellis.

Do these breeds of tomatoes still exist?
Everything that I see lately needs to be supported by a cage as a bush.

Yes, there are a few varieties. Look for Trip-L-Crop Tomato seeds or plants online. I have never seen them at a home center or nursery.
