Why not just plant some in protected spots and see how they go? Nothing to lose except a few plants, much to gain if they succeed.
Tamarillos are so easy to grow from seed you could plant yourself up a heap of them easily from one fresh fruit. Remember they are short lived trees anyway. You need to keep propagating regularly to keep up a supply.

Yes, and if you strike some cuttings from an existing Tamarillo plant and get it through winter, you will have fruit even quicker. I have flowers on a cutting I struck late autumn.
I think Pomegranates would do well in your area, They used to grow in Gunnedah when I was a kid.

A normal tamarillo seedling tree has a trunk of at least 1.8m before it branches. If you grow the cutting from the top foliage, the new tree will bypass the trunk stage and give you a shorter tree mostly within reach of pruning and harvesting. Also the tree is less prone to being blown over.

Nice looking tree from a cutting John Mc. I've never been able to succeed from cuttings myself so just stick to seed grown.
Interesting comment from Denise about a shorter plant from cuttings.

I find that in Sydney, September is the magical month for striking cuttings; success rate is highest then.
