The bark is smooth, greyish-brown in colour, and exudes latex when injured. The twigs are mostly hollow, covered with small, stiff, bristle-like brown hairs. The stipules protect the young leaves and fall off very early. The elongated, elliptic leaves are rough, about 7-35 cm long and 3-16 cm broad, have a tapered base, a short pointed tip and a dark green gland on petiole. Figs are arranged in clusters on leafless branches and the trunk, ripening to pale yellow.
