Seasoning, or The Seasoning, is the term applied to the period of adjustment that was undertaken by immigrants - African and European - following their first attack of tropical disease, during the colonization of the Americas. Malaria was the chief adversary of colonists and slaves. Death rates dramatically differed between regions in the Americas. Those who survived were known as Seasoned, and for slaves this would command a higher price.
