As far as the fruit trees go, the main thing to look for are ones on dwarfing rootstock as 2.1m isn't very high for the majority of free-standing trees. A better solution might be to grow cordons or espaliers if you can construct a frame. Many suppliers now stock 'patio' fruit trees which are meant to be grown in large containers but will have all of the attrributes required. You are not going to get fruit from a new apple tree for at least a couple of years (well, you shouldn't let any fruit set in the first year at least to allow the roots to establish) and perhaps longer for the cherry and pear. My cherry trees took 3 ot 4 years before they even started blossoming.
You can buy compact varieties of blackberry - have a look at Chris Bowers site.
