You can grow all kinds of vegetables in Florida but you need to plant them during the cooler months. For instance, you can grow veggies in February for harvest before the weather gets too hot, or you can plant in October to harvest before winter time. Here's a publication from the University of Florida with vegetable garden planting dates:

Citrus trees and avocado trees grow well in Florida but you can also grow more exotic fruits such as paw paw and guava. Check your local nursery for the best varieties. Enjoy your edible garden!
