This ficus plant is easy to identify with its pocket-like fold in leaf. It is believed that Lord Krishna used this leaf to steal butter-hence the name. It is a large tree with a big crown and can grow to around 30 meters. This native ficus plant should be an excellent choice for landscaping. Some consider the tree as a variation of Ficus benghalensis (var.krishnae). Leaf is obtuse at apex and rounded at base and look glossy green. This sacred tree is worshiped in many parts of the country. The picture of the tree was taken from Tirupathi zoo. It can also be seen in Lalbagh Botanical Garden, Bangarulu. Not commonly seen in Tamilnadu.
