SANDPAPER FIG Ficus coronata
This small fig occurs along watercourses along the east coast of Australia. An attractive small tree with sandpapery leaves and edible fruit. Grows densely in full sun, less so in shade. Very good for stream bank stablilisation.
The small figs are a tasty bush food and the leaves were used by Indigenour Australians to finish off their wooden tool.
