Ficus mysorensis
Fam Moraceae
Local name: Gon`i
 
 
A tall, large, shady  and magnificient tree found fruiting on Feb 24th 2008.
We saw two of them, one of the tree had just started fruiting while the other had 100's of fruit and some had alredy fallen into ground (by bats ?). An Indigenous tree found in karnataka.

Dear All,
 
I found from Top-SLIP that Ficus Mysorensis fruit is a  favourate among all Hornbills. In fact i saw the great indian hornbill on the tree several times duirng the trip. Bears also feed on the fruits..The tree was found with Fruits(Flowers?) in the month of Januray in Top slip.
