Brazilian Cherry – Jatoba

Grows In: South America
Hardness: 2820

DESCRIPTION
Brazilian Cherry have a reddish cast, but they vary greatly in tone and color. Some manufacturers use a steam process to bleed the darker heartwood color into the sapwood. Brazilian Cherry is the one of the most popular imported species given its inherent beauty, rich coloring and superior hardness.

COLOUR RANGE
Brazilian Cherry, when first milled is a tan/salmon color with black striping which turns a rich deep red color over time. The colour varies from yellowish hues to pink/reds to dark reds with black striping. Quartered selection yields the most uniform look/color range.

COLOUR CHANGE
Like domestic cherry, Brazilian Cherry will change dramatically over time from the yellow/tan/salmon color when freshly milled into a deep rich reddish color. In direct sunlight, the color change will occur within a few days. Out of sunlight, it will oxidize slowly over six months. Water based finishes tend to retard the color change while oil based finishes enhance it.

IDEAL USE
Brazilian Cherry, with its durability and moisture resistance, is an excellent choice for rooms that will see heavy use, including kitchens and bathroom. Its deep red tones and the wide variability in coloring from board to board can make a dramatic background in a contemporary or Mediterranean style room.
