The nutrients in commercial composts last anything from 80 to 100 days. When I had mine in a pot I fed it a generous handful of slow release food every spring. Make sure you protect it from frosts over winter and it should produce more fruits each year.
In this garden there is a huge one in the ground which produced masses of leaves and no fruit last year. I pruned all the lower stems back to the main trunk and reduced a lot more last autumn and didn't feed it. It is now covered in fruits but it does have access to all the nutrients in the soil.
