Does the Sycamore tree mentioned in the Bible have thorns?

It doesn't appear that it does. The Sycamore is a type of fig

(Ficus Sycomorus), although inferior in quality to what we know as

a fig. None of the figs I know have thorns. Add to that the fact it

is the tree Zacchaeus climbed to get a better view of Jesus then it

doesn't appear to be a thorny plant.
