Do I need a Sungold Apricot tree?

Asked August 15, 2018, 11:04 AM EDT

I planted 2 Moongold Apricot trees in May 2017, thinking they would pollinate each other. This spring they both bloomed, but I got no fruit. I assumed it was merely due to the young age of the trees. But I've done more research and have gotten conflicting information. Do I need a different variety of apricot, like Sungold, to pollinate my Moongold trees?

Yes you need to plant a sun gold. http://igrow.org/gardens/trees-and-forests/pollination-requirements-for-fruit-trees/ John Ball works in the same zone and he is very knowledgeable. I trust his advice.
