Unique is a self-fertile variety & you shouldn't need a pollinator but having another tree nearby will increase fruit set. I used to grow 'Unique' back home in NZ...never did much to it at all & it always fruited well.

They generally take around 3 years to fruit. They tolerate hot temps (but hot dry summers can effect fruit yields & may cause fruit drop) but require cool temps to fruit (I've read anything from 50-200 chill hours under 7deg). So if you're not getting fruit from a named variety, this may be the problem (sometimes seedlings don't seem to fruit well but named varieties should be ok).
