What variety of rhubarb is best?

At our previous house, we were given some rhubarb to plant which was wonderful. When we moved to our new house, we didn't have any so I picked some up at a local store (can't remember if it was Wal-Mart, Lowes, or whatever). Anyway, it's really not that great. It bolts to seed early and the stalks get very thin and pithy. I didn't think it mattered much, but perhaps it does. Can anyone recommend a good variety of rhubarb to grow. I want to dig up what's there and throw it away and plant something descent!
