Arbutus Unedo

I have an established Strawberry Tree which last year had hundreds of flowers on it. This autumn I can only see two fruits. Do they need pollination to set fruit or is it likely to be a weather thing?

Hundreds of flowers again this year so wondering what to expect fruit wise next year.

    What time do they flower? Could they have been hit by a late frost? Some plants fruit heavily in alternate years.

    Might have been too cold for the baby fruits through that never ending winter. They come from a warmer place than here. 

    That's just a theory, I have no personal experience of these
