Answerwhat is the natural resources of colonial DelawareAnswerwhat is the natural resources of colonial DelawareAnswerDelaware offered many different resources and I think that they grew tobacco plants but I'm not quite sure. Of course they didn't have indigo like the southern colonies and I believe that they also grew wheat since the Middle Colonies, where Delaware is located, was called the "Bread Basket" so they were peobably over abundant with wheat and grain products.what is the climate of colonial Delaware?Ok, sorry, but you are wrong. Tobacco was only grown in the southern colonies, and the breadbasket is states that were never colonies! In Delaware, the resources were wheat, lumber, fishing, rum, cattle, and iron.
