Well, the title says it all:

What kinds of plants would you grow when you are in zone 10b, 1200 millimeters of rain (47 inches), clay soil with rock dust and rocks, no rain from June to August, most rain is in spring, then winter and then autumn. Lots of hills so difficult to make swales.
Here are some pics from the native woods and the major pioneer plant (fig cacti)

I'm thinking of these:

Winged bean
Pigeon pea
Perennial cucumber
Perennial peppers (hanabero, ají dulce etc)
tree tomato
Cherimoya
Olives
Pomegranates
Figs (they are a weed so you dont need to grow them)
Loquats
Lemon guava
fejioa
runner bean
lima bean
walnuts
dates
avocado
air potato
chinese yam
sweet potato
lychee
jackfruit
macadamia
carob

Thank you
