I. NOTES OF INTEREST

A. Vegetable Crops Calendar.

February 24, 1994. Florida Weed
Science Society Meeting. Auditorium
(Exhibit Hall), Clayton Hutchenson
Agricultural Services Center, 9:00 4:00 pm.
West Palm Beach, FL. Contact W. M. Stall.


II. VEGETABLE GARDENING

A. Florida Big Vegetable Contests
Comparative Scoring Tables.

Purpose: Big vegetable contests are
popular at fairs and other events around
the state of Florida. For example, the
South Florida Fair at West Palm Beach
has sponsored a "largest vegetable contest"
for over 10 years, providing substantial
premiums to competing exhibitors. Similar
events are sponsored by the Florida State
Fair (Tampa), and The Harvest Fair
(Jacksonville).

Basis for Scoring. Scoring is based upon 5
years of data collected on the weights of
largest vegetables grown in Florida. From
these data and observed specimens, a
super-size has been determined for each
kind of vegetable most often exhibited.
This super-size may be used by an
exhibitor as an equivalent comparison
between any two kinds of vegetables. As a
further guideline, an average-size has been
determined for each vegetable as being
20% of the Super-size-weight. The
following table provides a means for fairly
comparing different kinds of vegetables
(eg. tomato vs cabbage).


Points. Since most scales are calibrated in
either pounds or in pounds-plus-ounces,
the points per unit of measurement have
been calculated to provide an equal score
for any kinds of vegetables being


compared. In the scheme presented, scores
for average-size vegetables, no matter the
kind, always total about 100 points.

Using the table

a) First determine that the
rules for trimming a clean,
unaltered specimen have
been followed.

b) Then zero the scale and
weigh the specimen.

c) If the scale is calibrated into
pounds plus ounces, convert
first to total ounces, then
multiply the weight in
ounces times the points-per-
ounce given in the chart.
Now you have the
specimen's score, which may
be compared with the score
of any other specimen,
regardless of kind.

or:

If the scale is calibrated in
pounds (or fractions thereof,
such as 2.55 pounds),
multiply the pounds times
the points-per-pound (taken
from the chart). Again, you
now have a score that may
be compared with other
specimens' scores for a
totally objective,
mathematical determinator
of placings.
