Can raspberries or blackberries be successfully grown in the SW Florida area? If so, which strains are most suited to Fort Myers?

Among the best blackberry varieties for Florida are 'Oklawaha' and Flordagrand', which are early fruiting trailing types. 'Brazos' is a later fruiting, semi-erect type. I have tried growing Raspberries in the Jacksonville area with very little luck. Raspberries require a colder climate than ours.
