Best cucumber for containers?

rockguy(7a)January 28, 2011

I'm asking for opinions for a good cuke to grow outside in containers in zone 6 TN. I'm thinking bush types with short vines, but maybe gynoecious type would be better producer overall and might be worth tying up. What do you think?

Sweet Success
County Fair
Straight Eight
