Default Re: What's generally the preferred option?

Those "pups" are the next generation of plants. You ought to leave one or two. When you remove the pups, you damage some of the parent's roots, which if severe enough can stress the plant and result in fewer and smaller fruit. Don't remove them all at once, if you intend to remove them.
