The structure of Hoka trees is distinctive, with branches and offshoots radiating from the central trunk. They are most typically seen around oases in desert settings. The Hoka seed is a gorgeous red-oval structure that hovers high up in the palm-like form of the trees, resembling a cricket ball. Ancient Egyptians employed these fruits in their funerary ceremonies.

Hoka seeds are used to make the native 'Tadi.'
