You definitely need to find another tree that is either a male tree (has long sprays of small flowers) or a bi-sexual tree that has "perfect" flowers. Your female tree has no pollen so there is no chance of it producing any fruit without pollen.

Could you post a picture of one of the flowers on your tree? It's possible that it may be bi-sexual - there are lots of those for sale now and if you bought the plant, i.e did not start it from seed - there's a good chance it may self-pollinate.
