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.
