This plant has no visible creeper fronds or roots in my front garden. I only spotted it as I saw the fruit on the ground.Seems to be growing from a large ball/knot on a branch of the Forest Toad tree. Fruit can't come from any other tree in the vicinity. Celtis africana, Bridelia micrantha,and couple of others only.
