No idea about MySQL but a blob-ish type is likely the right choice.
You have to check your MySQL documentation how to insert binary data 
into a blob. This is not a Zope issue since Zope generates only the SQL
_you are writing_. If you upload a file you should be able to get hold 
of the binary data of the file through something like

binary_data = context.REQUEST['name-of-file-field'].read()
