Apricots benefit from cross-pollination and usually need another apricot variety nearby for successful pollination and fruit set. Apricot trees are self-incompatible, which means that they cannot pollinate themselves, and require a different variety in close proximity for cross-pollination.

Having two different apricot varieties nearby helps ensure a more consistent and abundant fruit production. It's important to choose apricot varieties that bloom at the same time to ensure cross-pollination and fruit set.

Note: Some apricot varieties are self-fertile and do not require another variety for pollination, but having a second variety nearby can still increase the overall fruit production

Mandshurian apricot is a variety that is considered self-fertile, meaning that it does not require cross-pollination from another apricot variety in order to produce fruit. This makes it a good choice for growers who have limited space or who want to plant only one apricot tree.

Self-fertility in apricot trees is relatively rare, as most apricot varieties require cross-pollination from another variety to produce fruit. However, Mandshurian apricots are one of the few self-fertile apricot varieties and can produce fruit without the need for a second variety nearby.

It's important to note that while Mandshurian apricots are self-fertile, having another variety nearby can still increase overall fruit production and provide better pollination and fruit set.

Growers should also keep in mind that self-fertility and fruit production can be impacted by environmental conditions and factors such as the amount of sunlight, temperature, and precipitation.
