Raja Puri
Ice Cream
Gold Finger
Dwarf Namwah
Sweetheart (FHIA 3)
Namwah Pearl
Praying Hands

Would you agree with it ?

That's Jon's (pitangadiego) website, and I'm pretty sure that list was based on growing experiences by JoeReal, who was a member here from (I think) northern California, which would be 9a or 9b. Your climate is probably fairly similar to that. I don't agree entirely with the list though. I certainly think that Namwah is more cold hardy than Mysore, for example, but both do fine in my zone.
