Family: Moraceae
Elephant ear fig tree, Giant Indian Fig
Origin: India
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliageEdibleSeaside, salt tolerant plant

The elephant ear fig tree is the fig tree with the largest leaves in the rainforests of Xishuangbanna. It usually occurs in windbreaks of the forest, in forest clearings, or at the edge of rain forests: simply the places where birds frequently roost and leave their droppings behind. The young leaves are starting intensely red, and turn more and more green when reaching their ultimate size of up to 2 ft in length. This is surely an impressive fig species and it makes a great indoor plant for large rooms or hotel lobbies. It can also easy be trimmed and the plant reacts with even more shoots and leaves on a thicker stem.The fruits are very much liked for the jelly-like substance contained in them. If this tree gets a proper supply of water, organic matter, etc. It grows very vigorously.

We bought our home in the Los Angeles area last July (2012). In our backyard we have a wonderful elephant fig tree. It must be 30 feet tall. It produces tons of fruits, but we are not sure how to use them. They are much firmer than regular figs, much more fiberous. I've seen a few soften up on the ground after fermenting. Its a great tree just to look at and big leaves provide lots of shade. Clean up of this tree is really easy since the leaves are so big.

There is a beautiful specimen of this tree growing at Leu Gardens (Orlando, zone 9) which must be decades old due to its large size. Look for it in the palm area.
