|I don't. I have tried it a few times. Don't make no difference.
Try a few, and mark them. To see.
Just the first 2 or 3 laterals. Root the laterals, if you have room for more plants.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

|No never. Determinate only grows to a certain size plant and stops. Pruning off suckers reduces the amount of fruit you would get from that plant.|
