Broadest at tip
The leaves are oval, 3-9 cm long and broadest towards the tip. They are borne alternately on the twigs. They are almost hairless, with fine teeth along the margins and are slightly sticky when young. The upper side is dark green but the lower side is paler. The leaf stalk is 1-3 cm long. The leaves often have small blisters on the upper surface caused by tiny mites (see photo).
