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'?
