Good canned artichoke hearts

I haven't been a fan of artichoke hearts until a very good salad I had recently. I was so excited, I decided to buy some canned artichoke hearts and whip up a salad to go along as part of a Mother's Day dinner for my mom. To my dismay, they were -very- salty, even allowing for the salt in the brining fluid, and so mushy that they fell apart. Not really the thing at all. :( Still, I'm determined to try again!

Is there a recommended brand, or method of preparation? Or some other way of getting artichoke hearts that doesn't involve gutting dozens of fresh artichokes?
