Hi..the plant is still young but it should show signs of flowering...
Think of all fruit,either apples almonds figs etc as reproduction they are seeds after all...by pruning either roots or shoots..(that is why commercially fruit is pruned) it makes the plant think it is dying,so better make good seed, therefore we get a good crop of fruit.bigger better more...the tree is maximising the chances of reproducing itself..try cutting back some of the soft sappy leafy growth.sound dangerous but things like wisteria figs armond etc will respond to a little root pruning..just don't go mad.! sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind.
best of luck
