New raspberry and blackberry culture

Planted potted raspberries this fall.

The current-season canes are fairly small and short, as is usually the case.

Am I better off to just prune them out completely this winter to allow the new canes to push as much as possible next year, for a 2022 crop?

Or can/should I leave them to see if I get a handful of fruits next year, even though it won’t be more than a handful if any?

If it were my first time with this raspberry variety, or first time grown under my garden conditions, I would leave a few canes for a taste test next year.
