Hi Judy-Ann
Low chill apples require at least 100 chill units (fuji apple), and peaches at least 250 chill units (tropic snow). You will have more success with grapes because they are currently grown in the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, India and Northern tropics in Australia with average temperature between 22C-32C much like Saint Kitts. The tropical grape varieties suitable in your climate are; beauty seedless, perlette, fresno seedless, cardinal, sultana and ribier. Other fruit trees that does not need any chill requirements are; lemon, orange, mandarin, avocado, papaya, tamarillo, custard apple, jujube (chinese date), jackfruit, mangosteen, jaboticaba, carambola, star apple, soursop (graviola) and much more.
Happy Gardening :-)

Pears are out of the question for a tropical island, although they say Hood and Keiffer are very low chill.
There are some very low chill apples (Anna, Ein Sheimer) that could work, I'm not sure.
Ultra-low chill peaches include Tropic Snow, Eva's Pride, Flordaprince, May Pride.

Just search for the lowest-chill varieties you can.
