It sounds like the fruit is not ripening on the vine.

Thinning the crop could help.

Do you know the variety that you are growing? It would help to know the variety and it's characteristics.
Also if you have a grafted tree and you had root stock take over, it could lead to a more undesirable fruit.

I would search out a garden center or nursery in your area. They may be able to order trees for you if they are not in stock.
