    You will need a Dorset and Anna Apple for cross pollination. Don't expect a large harvest here in South Florida.

    Southern High bush are best and many low chiil Blueberry plants are available. My favorite is Sunshine Blue.

    Wonderful in my experience is not well adapted to our area and produces poorly.

    You did not mention Peach Trees. Are you aware of the tropical varieties?

    Im growing Acai Palm. Im also in a Rare Fruit Council and have experience growing all kinds of fruit trees. Most of the fruits on your list grow better in North Florida and more north of there. The best deal is to grow things that thrive here including Mango, Lychee, carambola, Black Sapote, white Sapote, Papaya etc. These are made to grow in this environment. Apple, blueberries and such are mostly made to have some chilling time.

    These are some of the best fruit trees for your area.

    To check on the other trees you have listed, just type the name of the tree in your search box add the words growing zone.
