Here's a webpage devoted to this topic. You might want to ask on the gulf coast forum, also.

Some citrus tolerate cold temps, and can be somewhat dwarf. Calamondin is the easiest to me down here. They are very sour inside with a sweet skin like kumquats. Sweet kumquat are easy and delicious all the way through. Meiwa is a name of a sweet kumquat. Figs can be kept small through pruning. Loquat trees can be kept small. Some people don't like them. Berries are great.
