Did you know that February is National Grapefruit Month?

In 1823, a Frenchman named Philippe Odet first brought seeds over from the West Indies to Florida, planted a grove near Tampa, and now we name our Florida Major League Baseball teams in spring training the “Grapefruit League.”

We are celebrating National Grapefruit Month with a juicy mailbag. Could be tart. Could be sweet. It’s up to you!

Please help us celebrate the contributions of Monsieur Odet by submitting your questions about sports, music, life, politics, humor or even select fruit in the field below.

We’ll answer the best in coming weeks.
