A large evergreen tree 30 ft to 82ft, with a spreading crown and a pale yellowish trunk that is usually buttressed. It is the largest indigenous fig in South Africa and is associated with a high water table, occurring along rivers and on seasonal floodplains throughout the subtropical and tropical regions of Africa. It will be familiar to visitors to the Kruger National Park. The figs are large 1" to 2" in diameter, yellow to red when ripe and borne in large, branched bunches on the main trunk and older branches. They are great favourites with people living in the areas where they occur, as well as with many species of birds and mammals. Trees are used as nesting sites by birds and crocodiles have been known to take refuge underneath their roots! This is the sycamore of the Bible, and was used as a shade and avenue tree in ancient Egypt. The bark and milky latex are used medicinally against ringworm.

Ficus virens

White Fig, Grey Fig, Spotted Fig
Family: Moraceae
Origin: India
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerantSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Ficus virens found in India, southeast Asia, through Malaysia and into Northern Australia. It is locally known as Pilkhan or Manbornde. Like many figs, fruit are edible. This is a very massive tree in which the size of the crown can sometimes exceed the height of the tree. However, it will take many years and generations to grow to that size... It makes a great bonsai as most of the fig trees.

One of the most famous specimens of this tree is the Curtain Fig Tree of the Atherton Tableland, near Cairns, a popular tourist attraction.

This tree is a fig tree belonging to the group of trees known as strangler figs, which is because its seeds can germinate on other trees and grow to strangle and eventually kill the host tree.

Morus hybrid, Mulberry
Morus alba 'Issai'

Morus hybrid

Mulberry
Family: Moraceae
Origin: Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Americas
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterDeciduousEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Morus is a genus of flowering plants in the family Moraceae. The 10-16 species of deciduous trees it contains are commonly known as Mulberries. They are native to warm temperate and subtropical regions of Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Americas, with the majority of the species native to Asia. The taxonomy of Morus is complex and disputed. Over 150 species names have been published, and although differing sources may cite different selections of accepted names, only 10-16 are generally cited as being accepted by the vast majority of botanical authorities. Morus classification is even further complicated by widespread hybridisation, wherein the hybrids are fertile.

Illinois Everbearing: This hybrid is not as well known as some of the older mulberry varieties. It originated in Illinois around 1947, and because the berries were large, flavorful, nearly seedless and had a long season, the tree was introduced commercially in 1958. Imagine clusters of very large, very sweet blackberries growing on a tree. A beautiful ornamental with dark green, tropical-looking leaves, it can reach 30 feet tall (or prune to keep smaller). Developed in White County, Illinois nearly 50 years ago, it produces berries from July to September. Exotic mulberries are easy to grow. A beautiful ornamental bearing sweet, juicy fruit. Tastes like extra-sweet blackberries. May bear fruit first year after planting. Disease and drought resistant. Plant your tree well away from paving, patios or walks. Then, beginning the very first year, you can enjoy its fruit all Spring to Summer. In fall its leaves will turn yellow, then drop. Late in spring they emerge again, soon followed by small greenish flowers. You don't have to worry about cross-pollination with this mulberry; one tree is all that is needed. Give the tree a sunny site, and do not allow it to dry out in summer. Prune it only to keep it out of your way, and low enough so the berries are easily reached. If you don't prune, its rapid growth may alarm you: despite the children's rhyme, it's not a bush but a substantial tree. Fortunately, the yellowish wood is useful. There are no bug or disease problems. Birds may compete for the berries, but there will be enough for all.
