New Fruit Tree
I am wondering what my best choices would be for a new fruit tree for my yard. I live in Las Vegas. I think a good size for my yard would be about 10 to 15 foot high by 5 to 10 feet wide. It is an area of good all day sun. I am interested in the tree for its addition to the look of the area, possible shade, near a pool (so not too messy), possibly some benefit to the birds, and somewhat drought hardy. I thought of Pomegranate, but do not know if that's what would be good for my location.

A pomegranate would work well in your location. They can take a pretty diverse set of conditions and as long as you can keep it watered, it will do well there.
