  Fruit Trees
The reason your young fruit trees have not grown may be poor soil conditions such as heavy clay, rocky soil, low levels of fertility, etc. Often it is poor weed control or trees which froze or dried out at the nursery.

  Annual pruning fruit trees
For most deciduous tree fruit, flower buds for the current season's crop are formed the previous summer.
Opening the tree canopy also permits adequate air movement through the tree, which promotes rapid drying to minimize disease infection and allows thorough pesticide penetration.
For maximum yield of high-quality fruit, prune only as necessary to establish a tree with a strong framework capable of supporting heavy crops annually without damage and to maintain a tree sufficiently open to allow penetration of sunlight, air, and spray material for good fruit development and pest control.

Some trees, particularly peach, plum, pear, and apple trees require a certain number of chill hours to break bud in the spring and produce fruit.
Some trees are self-fertile (no pollinator needed), some partially self-fertile (will produce more reliably with a second tree of another variety), and some self-sterile (needs a different variety for cross-pollination).
