'The term “limey” is based on the history of the British Royal Navy’s use of limes on board ships during the mid-1700s and onward to prevent and cure scurvy among their sailors while out at sea for extended periods. At first oranges, lemons, and limes were used. But eventually limes became the standard Navy issue. Limes were more abundant in trade route regions and doctors also thought they were the most beneficial citrus fruit.'
