your success will vary by:

-how much you water the tree, winter water when the temperature is 50F or better.
-plant the tree both in a protected area and where it has room to grow. 4example do not plant it in a well traveled exposed city right of way. Plant away from a foundation, activating expansive soils and moisture leaching into the basement walls.
-as mentioned above; a denver late spring over night freeze can happen and kill off a tree's new leaf buds. Good to get a variety that will leaf later in the spring.
-get a variety that can tolerate significant winter cold. Not every year will have a string of -10F nights but one or two years will happen.
-plant several varieties of trees.

i would not expect the tree to have useful fruit. Could happen tho

I have apple, peach, cherry, apricot and grape vines.

Just go to a good garden center (not home depot) and they sell trees misc fruit trees that do well for the Colorado climate.
