You should be successful planting any of the fruit trees you listed.

Can you tell us how long your trees lasted? How you planted them? How you watered them? How you prepared the soil? At what point they failed?

That's my point. Its not your choice of trees, its the care they received.

You may be dealing with some insects or diseases in your area that I am not familiar with. But it comes down to care - sprayiing for those diseases or insects, watering, fertilizing...

Fruit trees can be tough because they do need a lot of specific care. I grew up in apple country. The apple farmers are spraying their trees 5 - 7 times a year.
