Best cukes for pickles?

I'm making quick sake pickles (sake, seasoned rice vinegar, red Fresno chile, grated ginger and sesame seeds). In a test batch I used mini seedless cukes, but they got way too soft. Suggestions? Pickling cukes vs. English hothouse cukes?

My mother always gets Kirby's in NY, but I can't find them here in the suburbs in MA. Whole Foods has hothouse English cukes and sometimes pickling cukes - which don't really look like Kirby's.
