Dear TAXACOM members:

As a part of an EU project on eventual interbreeding of wild and cultivated
salad, a colleague and I run through the nomenclatural history of the taxa
In Species Plantarum (1753, pg 795) Linnaeus gives the diagnosis of Lactuca
sativa. We did not succeed in translating the last line:

Culturae mangorico forte producta ex proximis.

We would be grateful for help.
If necessary I can provide a scan of the page.

Thanks in advance, Albertine Ellis
