Probably Mariana is your best choice; although there may be some new hybrids that are better. Check what rootstock you local nursery is using for the trees they sell; any reputable nurseryman would try to sell trees that have the best chance to succeed in the local environment.... Please do not confuse reputable with Big Box stores.
