If you are getting plenty of flowers but nothing produces, then it is most likely due to poor pollination. Hand pollination often helps. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/beneficial/insect-pollination-process.htm

If you have blossoms with some that seem to drop off, then it could simply be due to the fact that these plants will produce mostly male (non-fruiting) blossoms early in the season and will gradually start to produce more female blossoms as the season progresses.
