  • One lobed caprifig

    Bumped into this today. Very ornamental tree. Any idea if this is a F. Carica?

      Great find Igor. Never seen anything like it! A Palmata hybrid maybe?

            Thanks, guys, for your input!
            I can tell the following:
            The tree was planted, the caliper at the ground level is about 15", the bark is of light grey color, the leaves are about 95% one lobed but there are some traditional fig leaves occasionally . The tree seems to be a caprifig judging from a large number of figs at the tips of the branches. I can tell more when they are ripe.

              How hard did you bump into this tree? Did any small limbs fall that needed rescuing? Just can't help asking.

                A tractor bump, lol.
                But all the branches were with leaves and my goats ate them
                Only a few were rescued .

                  My goats would like a small piece, if I had goats. Lol.
