Sapodilla grows effortlessly for us - lots of fruit. Ross sapote too.

A lot of the "Cherry type" fruit requires a lot of water to make them flower even when large bushes for me in S. Fl. Jaboticaba is especially water hungry and must be watered frequently for blooms... Cherry of the Rio Grande is close behind in my yard for needing water to get blooms... Thus my pleasure with them has dropped.

Black or White mulberry has required none to almost no additional watering in my yard once the trees/bushes are a large size and both are preferred by me as my sweetness of choice prior to mango season...  :P
(The everbearing mulberry was dinky and pathetic in my yard & I ran over it with the lawn mower to end it's lousy existence of puny fruit in my yard)

I see you already have 3 mulberry on the list....

You could also try Rose Apple as some years I have gotten a good quantity..... But most all years the fungus hits the new growth in the spring moving to the fruit and destroying the crop unless a lot lot lot of fungicide is used.... Much more fungus prone than any of my mangos.... So, a large tree with a lot of fungus this year and a few fruit. It can go on like this with very little care if you can ignore the ugly brown leaves (so keep it in the back unless you want to spray fungicides a lot)  ... But it is a very hardy plant requiring no water where I live now that it is larger.... (also the fungus does not affect the older limbs to any noticeable degree). The Rose Apples in the picture have a slightly sweet rose water taste and are fun to open the center around the seed and crunch the outer fruit shell.

Dead leaves are covering the ground under the tree......A few survive without fungicide but pics show the fungus growth on new growth areas:::

Rollinia, sapodilla (alano and silas w), and moringa grow and fruit very well here for me, with almost no troubles or extra care. Lemon drop and seashore mangosteen, along with achachairu, grow well, but no fruits yet. Panama Red and Possum Purple passion fruit grow and fruit on their own. Kari starfruit is another easy one to grow, fruits off an on all year. Jackfruit is growing well and stress free. Almost everything I've tried except abiu has done well. Cacao were stressing in ground, but are recovering in pots, outside in mostly shade.
