I have one plant it is a samsun variety, started to sucker...my thought is ...leave it to sucker since i want to save seeds as well, plus this one plant seems to be stunted in its growth...none of the other plants have suckered yet...thoughts..i know the strongest plant is prolly best for future growing..but hey im not a professional grower or growing for profit....????

If the plant is stunted and you save the seeds you are selecting traits that are not desirable. By saving seeds from this plant you are selecting for the traits "stunted" and "early suckering". You should save seeds from the traits you want to see in a plant such as disease/insect resistance, lack of suckering, early/late bloom etc.
