I havent seen much luck with fruiting on lonely trees but have seen a grove of them fruiting very well. However they are in different conditions. I would tend to grow 2 or more different trees close to each other to make bearing fruit more sure.

when you say 2 different do you mean 2 different seedlings or 2 different grafted kinds?

Either option, but you could also have a grafted and a seedling. You could get lucky with one tree as ivepeters reports but if you really want them and have the space, it could be worth the effort. If you know of a great sole fruiting tree it is worth grafting from it. A problem with some named varieties is that they were developed in a grove and may require pollenaters and after being distributed ,it is found that they dont perform well enough alone. or behave differently in a different climate zone. Because of these variables it is well to plant a mixture if you really want results and have the space. Also the best advise is often local advise.
