Rice and Potatoes. Google "Columbian Exchange" for more information about the transport of other crops, plants, and pathogens across the Atlantic.

The Crops They Grew, (Not The Food We Have Now) But the food that people had to grow, like corn, wheat, fruits... killed animals for meat..

They grew most of the crops that are grown today with the exception of: Wheat (which originated in the Middle East) Tomatoes (which originated in South America) Hemp (which is now illegal in the US, and it was not used for smoking)

No, not in the 1700s, but now it's fairly popular.
