The Native Rock Fig often appears as a stunted green bush, growing on the side of rocky hills or outcrops, or near permanent water-holes. The main trunk and branches are thin and spindly. The green leaves are leathery. At various times during the year, depending upon rainfall, marble-sized fruit are produced.
