RE: Fruit question

I think you have a good list. There are so many edibles that can be grown in zone 8/9. Check out the link below as it will offer some more suggestions such as fig and blueberry. You might also look into quince and persimmon which also grow well in this type of climate.

You might have to bring the lime inside during the winter so think about planting it in a container.
