STOMPer kk1001cdf was having lunch at a coffeeshop yesterday (Apr 27) afternoon, when the STOMPer spotted this unique tree at the junction of Changi North Road and Jalan Mariam.
In an email to STOMP, the STOMPer wrote:
"I came across this unique tree with fully grown of fruit at its tree trunk nearby.
"I wonder if this fruit can be eaten. Out of curiosity, I took some photos to share the uniqueness of the trees with other STOMPers."
STOMP is contacting NParks for more information on these plants.
It's definitely some sort of fig (Ficus spp.), although I can't identify the exact species at this point; my botanical knowledge is very rudimentary. Anyone has a copy of A Guide To The Fabulous Figs Of Singapore?
