Default Best for mostly shady spot

I have Dwarf Nam Wah, Sweetheart, Brazilian and Mona Lisa.
I want to plant one on the northern side of the house, at a corner so it will get about 2 hours of sun in the morning and maybe 3 h tops in the late afternoon.

Which would you recommend?
So far I am leaning towards Dwarf Nam Was mostly because I find it is the easiest to grow pretty much anywhere!

I have a dwarf Brazilian in a less than ideal spot and it is growing well.
But keep in mind a less than ideal spot in my growing zone 10 might be still better than an ideal spot in your growing zone 8.
Overall, if you have no better spot available in your yard, the Namwah or the Brazilian are probably the ones to plant there.

I have seen a Dwarf Namwah fruit successfully in zero direct sunlight. Don't know how, but it does it.

Confirms my take so far. Dwarf Nam Wah is the most easy to grow. Most soils and situations and easiest to get fruit on. Sweetheart has nicer leaves and growth while Brazilian always flower late.
