FIG - MORETON BAY
This Fig can take two forms, as a magnificent tall spreading tree or as a strangling vine depending on where the seed lands. When the roots finally reach the ground they will start to encircle their host tree until they eventually strangle it and takes it place in the forest. The orange coloured fig turns a dark purple when ripe. The edible figs appear around February until May. 40m. Makes a great Bonsai
