    Aphids do not stop a tree from producing apples. Is there another Apple tree near enough for cross pollination? Some Apples need pollen from two other trees to produce fruit.

    It’s self pollinating ,but there is another older tree next door too.   !

    A three year old apple tree is still  a baby ... like most living things, they need to grow up a bit before they reproduce  :)
