Price: $3.75
Often times Brazilian Cherry is called Jatoba and is found scattered throughout Central America, Southern Mexico, Northern South America, and the West Indies. The heartwood can vary from a light orangish-brown to a darker reddish-brown with sometimes contrasting dark grayish-brown streaks. These colors tend to further darken with time. The sapwood is a light grayish yellow which is clearly separate from the heartwood and the grain is typically interlocked with a medium to coarse texture and a moderate luster. In regards to durability and rot resistance, Jatoba rates very highly and is also resistant to termites as well as most other insects without being treated.
