Pirate Booty: Mangoes


In stock

What Did Pirates Eat?

What pirates ate depended on where they sailed. Pirates in the Caribbean ate mangos which they got onshore. The fruit was sweet, held up fresh or dry, and likely helped control scurvy, which killed millions of sailors over the years. Pirates likely introduced mangos to North    America.

 How Big Were Pirate Ships?

Today, we think of pirate ships as being big and powerful. Actually, most were smaller than the ships they attacked, so they could move quickly and stealthily, and take their victims by surprise.
