Grapefruit tree

I read your article on why my grapefruit tree won’t bear fruit. I have a 15 year old grapefruit tree that is about 30 feet tall. It started bearing beautiful grapefruits after about 5 years but 2 winters ago we had a very bad winter and the tree lost all its leaves and didn’t produce fruit the following season, then the next winter the same thing – a very cold icy winter and lost all its leaves again. Right now the tree has very healthy looking leaves but I don’t see any signs of grapefruits again. When do you think I will get fruit again? I did have to cut the tree back some because it was planted too close to my house and it was growing into my bedroom window. Any advice would be appreciated because I miss my grapefruits.
