Hi Osho, I found this video of a singapore fig tree on you tube by Johanli799 , if the tree you saw looks like this the fruits are edible.

thanks Daddel for the video image of the fig tree. However the one I saw wasn't similar to the one in the video. The fruit were all grown on the trunk of the tree. I also took pictures of the tree.

Yes, you can come to Hortpark bazaar sale on 31-Mar-2012 and get a fig plant from booth No. 4. The fig plants available for sale are "Deanna variety". Self fertile, sweet and has quite large fruit. Grows well in our weather and fruit all year round.
