Recently, I spoke with a gentleman who said his drip-irrigated rosemary will wilt a bit during the high heat of summer. So, I am quite iffy about the peach growing. Yet, date palms grow here.

Would a stack of rocks positioned to where air would cool as it passes through be plausible? Or, a shallowly buried tube?
