– To me this looks like a female tree of Broussonetia papyrifera.
– Yes, .. ji is right on Broussonetia but this is a fruit (known as Paper Muberry). The female flowers are greenish and hairy.
– Is the fruit edible?
– Monkeys do like it, dont know about humans. I tried once, but it was almost tasteless…
Trees of Bangalore – RA – Broussonetia papyrifera – Paper Mullberry Tree:
(Ref. Flowers of India)
A good series on trees of Bangalore by … with beautiful photographs of foliage, stem, flowers , fruits etc. , which speak visually ( the characters of the tree). Kudos!
Finally got the male flowers.
… there are trees on dickenson road, lalbagh, lower agaram road
I will slowly collect the latitude/longitude of these trees and create a map.
More pictures are on the link below
Broussonetia papyrifera, (L.) Vent. <=> Paper Mullberry Tree
The location is 12°57’6.33″N 77°35’11.46″E
There are about four five big trees. All these trees have typical bark. May be it is a distinguishing factor.
Can anyone explain these typical patterns on the bark.
Attaching a collage of these barks.
Male tree of Broussonetia papyrifera was observed at Agara Lake, HSR Layout, Bengaluru.
The slide which I had prepared is also attached with this message.
Thanks, …, for the wonderful observation of such patterns.
Bangalore – RA – Is it Ficus carica or Ficus Palmata?: Some of the trees have simple leaves and some of them have 3 lobes
Some of them have 5 lobes too.
could it be Broussonetia papyrifera by any chance ?
I think … is right
Not Ficus in which flowers are enclosed in a receptacle.
This could be Broussonetia papyrifera in which flowers are external and in globose heads.
It looks like Broussonetia papyrifera, I haven’t seen the mature fruit or flower so got confused.
Yes. Broussonetia papyrifera

This tree has been identified as Tetrameles nudiflora. Can this be confirmed please?
Yes it is Tetrameles nudiflora
To me it looks more like Trewia nudiflora [Petari / Petani] with new leaves and old catkins. [Both Tetrameles & Trewia generally flower in the deciduous state]. Please check the archives of this group for my photographs of this.

Is it edible.
I believe they are rather sweet, but difficult to keep as the fruits are rather fragile
Very good catch. Broussonetia papyrifera from Moraceae.

Beautiful pictures. I have seen in Lalbagh, Bangalore.
Very good photos. There are many trees near Agriculture college/Fergusson road Pune. This red flowers are difficult to find though.
Nice images of female heads with flowers. Male flowers are in hanging spikes. This fast growing tree has naturalized here in Uttarakhand.
Identification confirmation: 2 images.

Not too sure, but it may be Broussonetia papyrifera..
I too agree with you Nidhan JI for the suggested ID …
I am a college professor from the Canary Islands. Together with other colleagues I am writing a popular book in botanical history of these islands. The French botanist Pierre Marie Broussonett was an important figure in The botanical history of these islands. He is honored through the genus Broussonetia. We wonder if any of the network members could kindly share with us high resolution photos of any of its species and/or its ethnobotany. One of them (B. papyrifera) has ample use as a source to make paper. We will
Give credit to the author’s photo in the book.
None of the species of the genus reach the canaries.
We are grateful for the time and help with this query.
request for images of Broussonetia:
May I request members (those who have posted these images and are marked in cc) to pl. help him in the matter.
