Nearly all common varieties of apricot, peach, nectarine and sour cherry are self-fruitful (do not require cross-pollination). However, the J.H. Hale peach is not self-fruitful but can be pollinated by almost any other peach variety with a synchronous bloom period, with the exception of Elberta. So, choose another variety to plant with your hale peaches and you should have a bountiful crop. Hope this clarifies things for you.
