I don't have a greenhouse, but Diva is parthenocarpic, productive, and delicious.

Sweet success does well. I'm trying several others this year like H-19 little leaf and Excelsior. Both were rated high in the majority of studies for GH pickling cucumbers.

Try Tasty Jade, and also look at the varieties that Hydro Garden sells, they have several.

Another vote for parthenocarpic Sweet Success. The only bad part is that the seeds are sterile, so you have to keep buying them.

I grow a lot of cucumberss in the greenhouse and select only partenocarpic hybrid varieties to be grown in there. The seeds are more expensive and usually there is only just few seeds per packet than for the non hybrid varieties, which I grow outdoors. It is important to grow the seedless and regular cucumbers in different places, since the pollinator cuces will ruin the seedless ones, if the bees carry the pollen to them.

The varieties here are different from U.S, so I can not recommend any by name.
