Neither, it's day length - which coinsides with heat.  Like other 
Umbellaria - parsley, carrots, parsnips, Queen Anne's Lace, 
cilantro/coriander is vegetative during short day length of winter 
and spring and bolts quickly in long days of  summer.  Use a 
slow-bolting variety - Johnny's carries one as does Stokes - and 
succession plant.
