Cluster Fig

Cluster Fig
Also known as Gular, the Cluster Fig bears its fruit on the tree trunk. They are visible here growing on or between the buttresses of this tree as well as further up the trunk. The fruit is edible but is more often consumed by birds, insects and monkeys. The species ranges from India to Australia and this example was photographed along the Cape Tribulation road, near the place where we had our lunch.

I thought this might be yours when I saw it in the thumbnail. I remember George posted a photo of one a while back and just after that I heard David Attenborough describe it in a talking book so the two coming together inspired me to summarise the details in an article for a small gardening correspondent's group.

A lovely shot, Ron. I don't know the particular species, but that trunk instantly identifies it as a fig.

Not only is the trunk unusual, but the way this tree produces it's fruit is unique! Well captured image, Ron.
