Murure (Brosimum acutifolium), of the genus Moraceae (Mulberry family), is a large canopy tree of the Amazon rainforest that grows 15 to 25 meters high. It produces a white to light pink latex when the smooth trunk bark is wounded or the leaf stems are broken from the branches. It has oblong veined leaves about 8-15 cm long by 4-5 cm wide. Brosimum acutifolium is native throughout the lower elevations of the Amazon basin, usually growing alongside streams and rivers. Fish eat its fruits (similar to a fig but with one large seed inside) when they fall from the tree.
