The Hara tree, Avcennia marina, grows to heights of three to eight meters and has bright green leaves and twigs. The tree is  a salt -water plant that is often submerged at high tide. It usually blossoms and bears fruit from mid July to mid August, with yellow flowers and a sweet almond like fruit. The seeds fall into the water, where wave action takes them to more stationary parts of the sea.
