Ivy Fig is a large evergreen climber found on rocks
and trees. It climbs with rooting branches. Lesves are ovate-elliptic
pointed, entire, leathery, with 4-5 pairs of arching lateral nerves.
Figs are borne singly or in pairs in leaf axils. They are round or
ovoid, 0.8-1 cm across, orange-yellow or pinkish with pale dots when
ripe. Ivy Fig is found in the Himalayas, from Uttarakhand to Arunachal
Pradesh, at altitudes of 500-1500 m.
