Apple Trees - Knowledgebase Question

Question by preamble

We read in NGA that normally, apple trees will produce within two years after planting. Sadly and somewhat embarrassing, to say the least, we've had a total of six apple trees in the ground for 5 years and have yet to get ONE SINGLE APPLE (am I yelling? Obviously after reading that by NGA)

We get leaves and we get blooms but we sure as heck don't get a fruit, how come?

Perhaps you need a different pollinator variety? Or your varieties are too far apart? Most apples need another apple variety within 50 feet for pollination. I hope that's it because I'd be upset, too.
