Darwin zea mays data

In 1878 Charles Darwin recorded the heights of zea mays plants to determine what effect cross-fertilized or self-fertilized had on the height of zea mays. The experiment was to select one cross-fertilized plant and one self-fertilized plant, grow them in the same pot, and then later to measure their heights. Data for 15 pots were recorded.
