They have been tried in NZ, but are too marginal to contemplate as a 
viable crop here.  My own ones have grown very slowly, and die back in 
the moisture of our winters...in fact, one of three is dead.  One man 
is reputed to have had a few nuts, but if they really had a future then 
they would have been established by other experimenters by now.
