Unless it's Santa Rosa you probably won't get any fruit. If you have a neighbor/friend with a Santa Rosa, you can cut some flowering branches and put them in a jar of water at the base of the tree and get some fruit that way. As long as the bees are cooperative.

Huh. Good healthy tree and no fruit. Usually the problem with Santa Rosa is OVER-production! I know it will be another year, but try the branch thing anyway. The tree may have been mislabeled.

Unless the flowers have been fertilized, the seeds will not develop into fruit. In some instances a male version of the tree needs to be close by so that pollination takes place.

Or try grafting a branch on.
