Most heavy vitamin c fruits are Citrus/pineapple type fruits that don't lend
themselves easily to drying. So I would say that they probably used mostly
"fresh" fruit. Fresh being it was not deadly rotten yet:)

Dried fruits do still carry vitamin C, yes?
Did they carried fresh fruit on voyages or dried fruit?
I'm curious... they knew how to make jerky and preserve meat...
