The Challenge

The average yield for each variety was calculated as the mean of four plants and the varieties ranked from heaviest yield to lowest.  You can try your guess of the ranking by entering the numbers 1 to 10 in the following table:







VarietyYour Guess
Novella
Rocket
Maris Bard
Maris Peer
Pentland Javelin
Wilja
Swift
Red Duke Of York
Casablanca
Homeguard

If you place each variety in its correct position you will be awarded 100 points. You lose points for every place away from the correct placing for each variety.

Some hints:
Two of the varieties are second early and MAY have been penalized by harvesting the tubers a bit earlier than they would normally.
