Had this tree about 3 years, no blooms or fruit. Great tree, about 5′ tall.  Is it possible that it needs pollinating? Thanks.

If it is getting blossoms but no fruit, then it needs to be pollinated and can be hand pollinated with a small paintbrush. If it is not getting blossoms, it may not be mature enough to fruit yet or is lacking phosphorous. Bone meal will provide phosphorous.
