Dwarf Fruit Trees, Dormancy

I’m looking at growing dwarf fruit trees in my greenhouse. For almost all the fruit trees, citrus, nectarines, peaches, etc, they require a period of dormancy, correct? How do I find the dormancy rates/temps/etc. of these type of trees? For example, citrus tree soil temp must reach 35-45 F for 6 weeks before being able to start the next growing season (I have no idea if that’s right, just a made up example). Or, are there any fruit trees that don’t require dormancy?

All citrus and fruit trees go into dormancy. The dormant season tends to be during winter while their active growth season is the rest of the year.
