Thinning is one option. If there is an abundance of fruit on the tree, thinning them out will allow the remaining fruits to grow larger.

Take a look at fertilizing practices as well, which may also require a soil test. Use a higher phosphorous fertilizer early in the season. This will result in more flowers, which brings more fruit. Then, once fruit starts to develop, use a higher nitrogen fertilizer, as this will result in larger fruit.
