Which are climate conditions requirements for GEM variety ? Could it be cultivated in tropical regions, such as Panamá?. There are regions here, reaching 1000 to 2000 masl, where some Hass groves exists. Temperatures are lower than those in lowland areas; hence I believe Gem could be grown there.  
What would you believe about planting Gem variety in lowland where it only occur two seasons (rainy, during 8-9 months and dry which last 3-4 months) Temperatures may range from 28°C to 38°C.  
Thanks for your advise.

The GEM is out commercially, but probably won't be available in retail for a while. Brokaw Nursery in Ventura and Persia Nursery in Fallbrook have license to sell them.
