Young tree, offered to me to plant but no name. No flowers on it (the pink flowers are from another plant). Don’t know if it’s a flowering or fruit tree….or neither. Thanks

    You’re very right. Definitely something in the fig family, but the dark red stems is confusing in finding the right species. But already a good start, thanks!

    Could be Ficus nataliensis

    I forgot to include this link which has great data on the African fig species. Click on each species to see its photos and distribution map.

    With out its flower or fruit, I’m speculating maybe some thing in the Moraceae family. Perhaps a species of fig (ficus)?. I’m unable to tell which species this is. Link below with numerous images of different species of this genus. Best wishes titiad!
