Mystery Lettuce 2   

Not sure what type this is. A neighbor plucked it out of her yard and gave it to me.

I’ve let this go to seed.

If this is an heirloom, my guess is “Marvel of Four Seasons”, a delicious rapid growing slowbolt lettuce which is resistant to drought, with a large head, crinkly, green. Shows red tinges in parts exposed to cool weather. If it’s hybrid, then it could be just about anything.

Thank you for your input! If it is an heirloom, I’m hoping to find out from this weekend when my neighbor has an open house. She has so much stuff going that I’m not sure she’ll remember what it is.
