Seedy Cilantro

Growing cilantro in Southeast Texas is a challenge. Not because it won't grow - it will. In fact, it thrives here. The problem is, it bolts practically as soon as you put it in the ground. As soon as the soil temperature reaches 75, cilantro sends up some lacy fronds and white flowers that mark bolting.

I know slow-bolting varieties exist, but before I invest time and money searching for them, I'm wondering if any of you have had success with a particular variety. If you have, please clue me in. Cilantro is one of my three favorite herbs, along with basil and mint.
