Methley plum is still on your list though. It has a low requirement for chill hours.

If the yard allows, you could plant a patch of black raspberries in a back corner and let them grow wild. They like sun until the hot part of the day around here and loamy soil (like the edge of a woodland facing east). The kids will just learn to stomp right in among the brambles and eat. They are probably the most delicious fruit I eat. But if you buy them, get around 25 plants. Otherwise you'll be waiting years for a decent patch.
