Anything with vitamin C in it can help prevent scurvy
Vitamin C is actually present in a lot of foodstuff (citrus fruits
ranges, lemons, limes, grapefruits etc etc, tomatoes, potatoes, cabbages, green
peppers... The list goes on )
Obviously Some foods have higher concentrations of the vitamin. I heard that some European sailors used to eat "Rosa canina" ( Dog rose ) which
actually has 10x more vitamin C than an orange weight for weight.
