I can't hear about scurvy without thinking of the Ashfall trilogy of books. They ate a lot of kale to prevent scurvy in those books.
nice to know there is a sailor lime :)
Yeah, when they finally found out what caused scurvy, it must have been such a relief for sailors...-Kati
Really interesting :)Bisous ♡BecomingTrendy | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter
Oh you just solved a mystery for me. I've always wondered why British sailors were called Limies.
This is indeed true.
That is interesting, I would have thought lemons were more common.
lemons are abnormally expensive here in my country this summer... it's like 5 dollars for a pound....
Oh my dear gosh. Five bucks for one pound?
And of course that's why British sailors were nicknamed "Limeys."
Limes taste really good, better than lemons.Kisses:)
That is true. And limes cost less, too.
Well at least they had something to prevent scurvy
Very nice fact :)

Wow, so great!xoxowww.its-dash.com
I never eat lemons and limes, too sour.
I learned about this in school, I remember.
I didn't know that. I love lemons and limes, can eat them just like an orange but I use them in marinades quite often.
Thank you so much for sharing this, Adam!
I wouldn't have made a good sailor. Not even with limes.
