This is a kind of strangler fig, in Sumateran forest. Saw it while traveling (sorry can't have more pictures, and sorry for the bad quality). Huge trees around 8 meters tall. red fruits ripen to purple brown, monkeys seems enjoying it very much as well as some wild birds. Fruits are 3x1,5cm yellow pulp, sweetish-sour, borne only near the tip of branch, not cauliflorus.
anyone have any idea of the species?
