Will Issai kiwi help pollinate other females?

Will Issai have even a minor roll in pollinating female varieties?

There is an actual male aprox 300' away, but it is on the other side of a house so somewhat doubtful the same bee will be finding both on the same flight. Lots of blooming plants here.

Issai is a female plant that can produce some fruits without pollination (parthenocarpic). Since it has no male flowers it will not help you.

Thanks. I assumed it was self pollinating.
