I'm thinking about growing some bonsai fruit trees, but I'm not very familiar on which will require more than one parent to make fruit. If you could name as many as possible, and whether they need another of their kind or not, it would be awesome!

Pistachios, persimmon, marula, kiwi, juniper (technically not fruit), Osage-orange, Ginkgo (fruit like),,,

Dioecious fruit and nut trees are unusual. It is probably more common to have plants that don't self pollinate.
