The tree could still be too young to bear fruit OR there may be too much nitrogen in the soil, which results in lots of foliage growth but little to no blooming. I would try giving it some phosphorus rich fertilizer, like bone meal, to offset this. If it is lacking phosphorus, it will not be able to produce blossoms (which means no fruit.)
