Climate needed to grow Avocado tree

Avocado    Iran, Borazjan

l'd like to know if I can grow an Avocado tree in our region (Iran 'Busheh' Borazjan) with summer middle temperatures of 35-46 Celsius and warm winds. It needs to be said that our climate is so good for growing date palm and but not for bananas and coconut palm. Thanks a lot.
