Space is definitely an issue for while I try to appreciative of the fact that I have a postage stamp sized parcel I am in fact in southern California. I think it is just about time and I am going to try to carve some time out this weekend to go meet the grower and get her/his opinion.
Unless space for growing the trees is an issue, growing a males tree along with female trees would save your the effort and expense of obtaining the pollen from elsewhere. I did find a link on hand pollenating these trees.
There should be some master gardeners in your area to ask that question to. If not then you could also go to a garden center and ask them. I am learning these things too.
If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I wish I could help. Unfortunately I live in a climate where we can't grow those, so I don't know anything about it. I definitely understand wanting to grow something that you spend so much money on, one reason I'm trying to plant more fruit trees and grapes. I hope someone is able to provide some tips for you and wish you luck with this.
I spent sooo much money on dates in the last year and am seriously considering planting a medjool date palm. I'm thinking I will just get the female and get some male pollination each year from a local grower. Any experiences/tips you may have would be appreciated. I've been researching it for a few weeks, but will not probably make the final decision/plant until spring.
