  This member of the Moraceae family was given this name by Pehr Forsskål in 1775. It is found in Eritrea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Oman, Kenya, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Yemen. Not fuzzy with the soil, can even grow as a epiphyte! Some sun and some water, and you will eventually end up with a 25 meter high tree.

The genera name originates from the old Latin name for Ficus carica. The species name puzzels me: Either 'delayed' or 'whip'?
