I'd choose the ones more in the 18" - 3' range, personally, but the taller ones will probably do fine. And if you want to get rid of the larger ones anyway, there's no reason not to.

I want to thank everyone in this thread (especially venturabanana!) for their guidance on the removal of pups. I dug out my first three on Friday for donation at my local CRFG chapter. Charles Portney -- my fruit-growing god -- took my medium size pup and later wrote that I had dug it out with "just the right amount of tissue and roots". I owe it all to you!
