Kevin (Fluffy) and other,
I recommend you go to the E-answers site at:

Click on: Search E-answers by region by keyword

for Florida: South  (this also works for the entire USA)

in the list: check the box for the University of Florida
in the box "Enter some key words to search by:" try cultivars
     *when I tried this I got 305 hits on fruit, vegetable, and ornamental 
cultivars grown in Florida, including strawberries, blueberries, 
persimmons, pears, low-chill apple cultivars, etc.  So many to chose from!

One document, "Deciduous Fruit for Central Florida", lists stone fruits, 
pome fruits, persimmons, figs, blackberries, pecans, blueberries, and grape 
cultivars, along with establishment and fertilization suggestions (the 
document is more than 20 pages long with the tables of cultivars for each 

At E-answers you can also search on a fruit by name; search as many 
universities or even the entire region at once.

University of Florida Extension Publications: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/
Florida Strawberry Growers Association: http://www.straw-berry.org/

Let me know if I can help you find something in particular.
