If you are in Florida, you might not be able to find suitable thornless 
varieties.  Your best bet might be Arkansas varieties:
though I couldn't get that link to work this morning.
Or maybe:
Navaho and Arapaho need more than my 600 chilling hours.  I don't yet 
know about Apache.

For thorny varieties, probably the Texas varieties would be your best 
bet: Brazos, Rosoborough, Brison, Womack.

How far north is Marianna?  What chilling do you get?  If you have any 
Florida varieties, please tell us about them.
