FICUS NOTA is a common fig in the Philippines but uncommon in Borneo, where it is confined to the east coast of Sabah.
In the Philippines this fig is known as Tibig and the female figs are eaten raw as a salad.
In the Philippines this fig tree is frequently planted to reforest watersheds where the forest has been destroyed.
At Tawau Hills Park HQ, there is a young tree growing on the edge of the HQ Padang (sports field).
