For apples you'll want disease-resistant; www.centuryfarmorchards.com and www.bighorsecreekfarm.com has suitable varieties for your location.

Visit Travis Callahan's gardening page, linked below.
He details a number of species & varieties he's grown for years in LA - and I'm sure would be glad to make recommendations if you email him.
