our citrus (oranges, lemons, tangerines, pomelos) do really well in Houston. Papayas are also good. Bought an avocado plant last year, and it's full of flowers right now. The flowers smell like a freshly cut avocado, and the bees love them! Other trees to consider - loquats (delicious apricot-like fruits) and figs.

Good veggies - just harvested swiss chard and snow peas. Dill, sage, mints and arugula are thriving, as are the eggplants and lettuce.

We've never had luck with peaches or figs, cuz the squirrel always got them first.
