Does this have an influence on the pollination of the fruit?

Some (not many) varieties of fig do need 2 trees so that cross pollination can happen in order to get fruit. Most figs though are fine as a solo plant. Smyrna varieties need male and females, but this is not a variety commonly found in homes.
