It would seem that most, if not all, will be suitable for your area. We don't usually work with large scale projects, and Other than what you have provided, I am not familiar with your area. Most citrus are tolerant of a wide range of soils, so that shouldn't be a big issue. If you do a quick search for your extension service or the equivalent in your country than they will be able to help you further. I am sorry I cannot be of much assistance here, as we are not geared towards projects such as this.
