In India, Madhuca indica is more commonly referred to as mahua, but the species Bassia latifolia bears the same name. It has the potential to grow to a height of between 12 and 15 meters and is a very huge and attractive tree.

The tree has a very short trunk, but it has many branches that extend out in all directions, which create a superb canopy. 

The form of the leaves is similar to that of an ellipse or an oblong. On the tips of the branches, dense fascicles of blooms that are first a creamy color and eventually turn a purplish color when they have reached their full maturity and are ready to fall off the plant are formed. The dried blooms, which are dark in color, have a pleasant flavor and can be consumed.
