There are a few possibilities, here. First, I would suspect that it needs more time. Realistically, you might see significant flower production after 2 or 3 years. This is given that all parameters are met, and the tree is old enough to flower.

Before feeding, I would do a soil test to make sure that it doesn't need, only, one or two nutrients. Most nutrients are lumped together, and having too much nitrogen in the soil, when all you need is phosphorus and potassium, will inhibit flowering.
