how well do berries do in GA?

I'd like to grow them either in central or northern GA. I know growing them in northern GA won't be an issue.

It's the central part of the state I'm worried about. Will I be able to grow them easily in zone 8a in central GA or will they be more 'fussy' cause of the climate there. Berries would basically be blue, strawberry, blackberry, raspberry and grapes.

Also I know this is off-topic but how well will artichokes grow in central GA? Same question about growing asparagus too (would like to grow as perennial) is this possible in central GA for asparagus?

This should be of some help. It's the Fort Valley brochure for growing organic small fruits, and it lists varieties and care. An excellent resource:

All of these grow well here. Strawberries, blackberrys, no problem. Blue Berries, you will need Rabbiteye or southern Highbush varieties. Grapes, muscadines do best.
