These seeds were collected from Ficus amplissima, also known as Indian Bat tree, Indian Bat fig, Pimpri, Pipri, Pipali, and Bilibasari mara. The ripened figs attract many birds, and this tree is often grown on coffee plantations to provide shade. The wood makes great fuel and lumber, and the leaves are used to feed the farm animals. The fruit is used to make pickles and fiber can be extracted from the bark and used to make rope and bags. Ficus, in general, are larval host plants for the Fig sphinx moth, and the Antillean Daggerwing butterfly. USDA Hardiness Zones 9b to 11.
