Variegated Fig Tree

Ficus variegata


A variable fig species which is very common in Borneo and across Asia. This species grows into a big tree with buttress roots. Fruits grow in large clusters. This tree has green fruit morph.


Roadside in a coastal forested hill around 500m a.s.l.


Borneo has around 150 native fig species. I enjoy documenting figs as they are unique. Their flowers grow inside the fruits and can only be pollinated by specialized fig wasps which enters and breed inside the fruits.
