    Yes, but you will want to get apples meant for warm climates. There will not be enough cold hours in your area to produce northern varieties of apples. You will find that the lack of cold will play to your disadvantage. Your local nurseries will carry varieties designed for your area. Just be mindful of chill hour requirements. The lower the chill hours, the better for the south.
