Bush tomatoes, or DETERMINATE tomato varieties are simply plants that produce most if not all of their crop at roughly the same time. They usually don’t grow much bigger than about 1.2m tall and generally have a lower, stockier and stronger structure.
You should NOT prune or cut back suckers on these plants as it will severely limit the production of fruit as the plant will generally not grow much bigger anyway.
I recommend still staking or caging these tomatoes although it’s not as necessary as their vine like partners. The fruit can get heavy anyway and it’s best to keep them up above the ground to prevent rot and grubs getting into them.
