Taken near deoprayag on 14.3.8 
Locally people refer to it as anjeer, which I believe stands for a fig. The leaves are unlike a goolar 
would appreciate id help

The tree looks like sycomore fig! Ficus sycomorus, commonly known as clustured fig, a most important tree in Africa for its wildlife support.  Any how, an element of about its identification exists as I am not able to get a clear picture of the foliage etc. 

Can you post pictures of its foliage?
I think … is correct. See the link 


This is unfortunately the only shot of foliage that I have (the foliage in any case was less than the prominent fruits). I am reposting it after some reprocessing


Looks like Ficus sycomorus. Need to be verified physically.


This was recorded from RBG, Sydney..
Was labelled as Ficus aspera cv. Parcellii


Catalogue of Life gives Ficus aspera f. parcellii (H.J.Veitch ex Cogn. & Marchal) J.E.Burrows as a syn. of Ficus sycomorus subsp. sycomorus
I think this may be correct name.

An old picture of Ficus Species seen at a plant nursery in Nasik on 21st March, 2012.

Fruit resembles our Common Fig, but the leaves are different.
A small, potted plant.


It is looking a cultivated Ficus species. I will check the name.


This is a cultivated ornamental variety of Ficus.

As per image morphological characters it should be Ficus aspera G.Forst. (Moraceae)
Also known as Mosaic Fig. Native to Pacific: Vanuatu
