Like peaches, I believe apricots are almost all self-fertile.  The only one I've read about that needs a pollinator is Harlayne, but I'm sure there are a few others.

    Does anyone know if Montrose apricot is self-fertile or does it need a pollinator?  The tree I grew from a pit is flowering for the first time this year.  It's the first fruit tree to blossom by almost a week.  The Asian pears (Korean Giant & Shinseki) are now blooming, and it looks like all the apples and the Saturn peach will flower by the weekend.  After that late Arctic blast and heavy snow, I didn't know if there would be blossoms.  But there are!  Hope springs eternal with fruit growers, I guess.

  I know that puget gold is self-fertile, since there's not another apricot within a couple of miles.  My understanding is that apricots in general are self-fertile.
