    If you just planted the tree last year I bet it is not mature enough to bloom yet. The pods are normal.
    Another problem may be too much high nitrogen fertilizer. That will put all its energy into producing leaves but few if any flowers. And it may just be getting settled in the new location. It takes a while for some flowering trees.
    I did the same thing with my fruit trees a few years back. Hubby wanted to use the same fertilizer we used on the garden for the fruit trees. Had tons of beautiful leaves but almost no fruit. He should have listened to me!

    They certainly like our acidic soil (5 -5.5pH) I cannot stop them from growing, given dappled or better light.
