T. chebula  is a medium to large  deciduous  tree  growing to 30  m (98  ft) tall. The  leaves  are alternate to subopposite in arrangement, oval.They have an acute tip, cordate at the base, margins entire, glabrous above with a yellowish pubescence below.

This tree yields smallish, ribbed and nut-like fruits which are picked when still green and then  pickled, boiled with a little added  sugar  in their own  syrup  or used in  preserves. The seed of the  fruit, which has an elliptical shape, is an abrasive seed enveloped by a fleshy and firm pulp. It is regarded as a universal  panacea  in  Ayurveda  and in the  traditional Tibetan medicine.

A number of glycosides have been isolated from  haritaki, including the triterpenes  arjunglucoside I,  arjungenin, and the  chebulosides I  and  II. Other constituents include a  coumarin  conjugated with gallic acids called  chebulin, as well as other phenolic compounds including  ellagic acid,  2,4-chebulyl-β-D-glucopyranose,  chebulinic acid,  gallic acid,  ethyl gallate,  punicalagin,  terflavin A,  terchebin,  luteolin, and  tannic acid.  Chebulic acid  is a phenolic acid compound isolated from the ripe fruits.Luteic acid  can be isolated from the bark. T. chebula  also contains  terflavin B, a type of tannin, while  chebulinic acid  is found in the fruits.
