Thanks to all the Bushel Gourd growers who supplied their OTT's at the Weigh-offs last year. We integrated your data into the new 2019 Bushel Gourd chart and there definitely was a shift up in the weight vs OTT. This new one should be more accurate than the 2018 chart. One thing worth noting is that the BG's have a wider sigma spread that the other fruits.
The new 2019 chart is now on gpc1.org in the resources section.
I noted the 2018 chart has not been removed yet. But it will be soon.
I also asked Ken D to not use the Watermelon chart on BP.com for the % to chart results this year, since most BGs were averaging 17-20% over the Watermelon chart.

Thanks for putting together. Looks like there may be a typo on the 107" OTT and was the step down for weights between 238"-239" OTT intentional?
