A. tortuosum self-fertilizing (?)

Jim McClements pointed out that A. tortuosum is either male or bisexual,
never just female (Gusman p. 391). Even so, it might be the case that the
male and female flowers mature at different times (Gusman p. 44) and
self-fertilization is unlikely. Can somebody on the list with experience
with A. tortuosum give me some idea of what to expect?

(Of course, I'll try to harvest the seeds and see if they germinate.)
