I am trying to locate information on theashew apple tree. I have been told that my Mother's sister had a tree in far northwest Mojave County, Arizona. This would be an area of significant summer heat, but possible lite snow. I now live in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. We are just about 700 feet above sea level, with perhaps 400 hours below 45 degrees, and very high (up to 125 degree) heat for an extended period from May to August. I have an orchard of fruit and citrus trees, and would like to consider a cashew, but have been unable to find a source or information on climatic requirements. The only tree I ever saw was in the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean. I know from your site that it came originally from Brazil, and would probably need frost protection at night. Any suggestion of sources?
