Hello, yesterday I came along this specie of fig tree, it had big round leaves. The shop couldn’t say which specie it was.
Does someone have any idea?

Could be Ficus palmata

"Ficus palmata is a deciduous shrub or much-branched small tree growing up to 5 metres tall.
The plant is often gathered from the wild for its edible fruits and young shoots. It is often cultivated for its fruit in India and Ethiopia and has been recommended for commercial cultivation"
