You can try to attract more pollinators. This article can help with that:

If this is not feasible, you can use a small paintbrush and swirl it inside each blossom you want to pollinate.

Q. Red Delicious Apple Tree Problem

My red delicious apple tree produces a lot of apples, but they get these little black spots on them. It kind of looks moldy. Can you tell me what it is and what I can do about it?

Q. Young Apple Tree Not Leafing

We planted a two or three year old Red Delicious apple tree last May. The tree looked good all year and bloomed beautifully this spring. Then. . .the blooms fell off and the leaves are very small and few. We live near Richmond, VA. and it has been dry. We water the plants from our well every day. Everything else seems to be thriving in the yard. Any suggestions? Oh, the tree seems loose in the ground too.
