India is home to the big, deciduous Bibhitaki tree, which can grow up to 30 metres tall. The tree's straight trunk is a brownish grey tint. Long, oval, alternating leaves are grouped near the ends of branches.
These measure 10–12 cm in length and 7–14 cm in width. Simple, solitary flowers have an unpleasant odour and are either white or yellow in colour. The Baheda Flower season is from May to June. Lower section of the plant is female, while the upper part is male.
Baheda Fruits are ovoid-shaped, grey-colored drupes. The hard fruit covering contains delicious kernels that have a sweet flavour. Although lacking ridges, its fruit resembles the haritaki fruit.
