Stem widened at base with pinkish-brown bark that exudes a white sap when injured. The hairy young shoots contain pale green leaves. Mature leaves are elliptic in shape with a slightly lobed base and tapering apex, about 6-20 cm long and 4-9 cm broad, and a conspicuous pair of lateral veins can be seen at the base. Occasionally deciduous. The finely hairy, globose figs are borne in large clusters on the main branches and trunk of the tree, and turn yellow-red when ripe.
