I bought a dwarf goldcot apricot supreme last year, should I get another or get a sungold dwarf to get better fruit from both?

BEST ANSWER: Generally, at least two different cultivars are needed for proper pollination. Multiple trees of the same variety usually doesn't do much for pollination.
Also, if one variety doesn't like something about conditions in a particular year, maybe the other one will.
Have a nice day.
