Greenhouses in Warmer Climates

I'm designing a greenhouse for use in Texas. 

It needs to be:

Useable year round.

Big enough and tall enough to grow bananna and papaya trees.

Flow into and Merge with outdoor growing spaces.

Be Deerprooof

Have an aquaculture component.

Have a thermal mass component (probably large volumn water) to mitigate temperature swings 

Probably have a swamp cooler and some backup heat

Have good quility glazing materials.
