The Lemon line clearly shows a benefit with 62 apple slices being ranked as 1. The open air apples were the worst with 109 being ranked as 9. The remaining apples seemed to follow a very similar distribution.

The results don't demonstrate any positive effect of saying nice things to apples or any negative effect of saying bad things to apples. We're left with the null hypothesis that saying things to apples is ineffective.

Thanks to all the scouts who participated and congratulations on earning your science badges.
