Ficus drupacea both the varieties from Namdapha NP Arunachal Pradesh. Lot of animals, including, hornbills, barbets, hoolock gibbons feed on it extensively. Both the varieties occur sympatrically in AP.

I agree with Hemsan that this is Ficus drupacea Thunb. of Moraceae
family
Ficus mysorensis is now a synonym of F.drupacea

Dear Pankaj ji,

It is edible for animals and birds for sure. We generally dont eat it.
But if you collect it from the plant when it is ripened we can eat it.
Remember that there will be lots of fig wasps in it!

Giby

That would be world's first non-veg fruit then.... :))
By the way, I got a chance to eat Artocarpus lakoocha after a long
time here in Dehradun. I loved it.
