    Olfart. I think many apple tree varieties require another variety to set fruit. You said tree, singular, so i think you may have to have another one, maybe of a different variety to get fruit.

    The older one is a Yellow Delicious, which claims to be self-pollenating. I've planted another apple tree, a Gala, just in case, but it's a few years from blossoming.

    I think with some fruit, it's also important to release additional pollinators occasionally, lacewings, butterfly caterpillars, keep bees if you can, whatever.
