Unfortunately there is no easy solution. The best way to net a fruit tree is as it grows, place four posts around the tree and attach the netting to the posts and adjust as it grows. For a more permanent solution people often create fruit growing cages.
You can simply drape the netting over the tree but birds often get through the netting if not placed on a structure. It may protect some of your fruit though so would be worth a try.
Other ideas are buying bird scare tape, creating bird scare flags with shiny material on a bamboo post, old CDs or making a scarecrow. Some people even put plastic bags over the fruit as they emerge.
Good luck 🙂
