[NAFEX] Currant - variety Cherry

Hello All,

I have a couple of currant varieties and noticed while pruning that some sucker heavily, while
others sucker very lightly.

Does anyone have a "Cherry" red currant that suckers very lightly?

My rule of "thumb" for currants is to prune out anything that has the same diameter as my thumb,
right to the ground.

If I did that to my Cherry variety there would be not be much left.  This particular variety does
not fruit very much at all, but as a bush is very healthy and prosperous.

Any ideas?
