This is most likely a pollination problem. Soursops in their native habitat are pollinated by ants, and will be better pollinated if at least two trees are growing nearby. Hand pollination will solve this problem. See these links for how to do it (the first explanation is for the related cherimoya tree, but the advice applies to soursop too):
