Mark,

The peach blossoms don't need cross-pollination, but something has to 
scramble around in the blossom to move the pollen from the anthers to 
the stigma.

In my area the male Blue Orchard Bees do a great job while they are 
waiting for the females to emerge.

I thought peaches had perfect flowers.  Doesn't that
