Ficus virens (infectoria) - seeds
White Fig. 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.
