Default Please Suggest Jalapeno Hybrid Varieties

I've only grown op jalapenos, and they checker like crazy, especially if you leave them to ripen to red on the vine. Johnny's Seeds claims any of their hybrid varieties have less checkering than OP varieties.

I'd like to try a variety that has checkering resistance, but I'd also like it to have a chance of ripening in my climate. I've never taken note of what the market growers with high tunnels sell, but it's a moot point for me with just an open garden.

I'm open to Johnny's varieties (they have several choices but I need just one) or any other seed companies. Any suggestions on jalapeno varieties for my climate?
