I also wrote in my book that the flowers are do "not seem to be  
completely self-fertile, because cross-pollination sometimes increases  
production." I suggest planting another variety or grafting a branch  
of another variety onto your tree. My trees fruit reliably after  
winters down to about minus 20 degrees F.
