This will be normal for young trees. You may see a few fruit here and there, but they may not swell to maturity until the tree is a little older. You can help this along a little by fertilzing the tree with fruit tree plant food once per year in spring. You can also add a little potassium and phosphorus to give it a boost until it is able to set proper fruit.
