Fruit trees not producing - Knowledgebase Question

I have a carambola which is over 2 years old and not producing, growing green and strong, but not fruit. Is there fertilizer I should be using, what and how often?

It sometimes takes fruit trees quite a bit longer to start bearing. Provide good care and only moderate fertilizing by applying a cup of turf fertilizer per inch of trunk diameter in late spring and if vigor is lacking again in mid summer. Water as needed to maintain good health.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
