Hi all, long time listener, first time caller! I'm in SW Western Australia and trying to find a list of wind tolerant fruit trees to plant on the southern boundary of a suburban block to act as a wind break for the winter months. The block is so small I can't really afford for the trees to not be edible. I'm in a temperate climate with hot dry summers and cool but rarely below 2 degrees Celsius winters. Trees will have full sun all day, Hope someone can help.
My list so far from internet research:
Cherry Guava
Feijoa
Lemon
Loquat
Pomegranate
Mulberry

I am only familiar with one on your list, there are quite a few pomegranates growing on the older properties, don't know if they'd be of the same variety as what you have access to, but these grow into sturdy 8-10' shrub that hold up pretty well to our almost constant West Texas winds.

I live somewhere super windy, but also cold. So I don't know about your tree list. However, I will say that I have found that planting things in holes does wonders. Protects from wind and harvests water. Win Win!
