Any guesses?

We spotted this tree at the Durban Botanic Gardens this week. It has these awesome flowers and fruit. Any guesses what it could be?

    this is a wild guess .
    the fruit remind me of a fig tree.
    there are loads of indigenous fig trees.

    Cant be a fig – figs dont produce external flowers, the flowers are enclosed within the fruit and pollinated by fig wasps which enter through the tip.
