New Mexico State University has a great pepper breeding program. That's where Big Jim came from, as well as a bunch of others. Try to grow several of them and see which does best for you. I used to grow Big Chile from Johnny's but they stopped carrying it. They have Big Chile II now, but I'm not as happy with it.
