Fingers crossed, yet again, that I will get some fruit this year.

I had the notion that it's more to do with the actual pollen setting part. Too much rain at the wrong moment perhaps. Could be many things no doubt. I just know I haven't had a good crop of fruit from this tree in years.
It appears our longan is getting less fruit set as the tree got bigger too, I wonder whether it is because there's not enough bees to pollinate the whole tree?? We haven't got to eat any for a few years now... what little fruits set were eaten by birds, possums and fruit bats...
No fruit has set for quite a long time.
And no, I probably wouldn't bag it. Tree is too tall, too many bags needed and the fruit that has set (tiny amount) hasn't been affected by anything worth bagging it from.
Do you bag your fruits Lissa?
