My neighbor grows it profusely.He calls it the "fall down over plant"(elder Trinidadian man)He showed me how it jumps up,falls over reseats(reroots)itself.Somewhat like arugula,poppy,some cabbage and lettuce varieties.He showed me how to dense plant,keeping soil only 3/4 up in propagating starting container(so as to use the sides as a holding wall,no sprawling)Then when he puts it into ground he uses round(cut from plastic clear containers)about 6 inch collars to keep plant upright.He says they need to hold each other up.He grows them for the seed(coriander).Him and his wife make some great recipes and do a lot of pickling with the seeds.
