Jatoba, commonly known as Brazilian Cherry, is a South American hardwood sourced from Bolivia. Its heartwood colors vary from a light, orangish brown to a darker, reddish brown. Their color tends to darken over time from light exposure. Jatoba is a very dense and firm wood that has a good natural luster. Its density allows Jatoba to be a good material for not only flooring, but also furniture, cabinetry, and shipbuilding. It also has very good rot resistance along with its density and hardness which makes it an excellent material for flooring with long life expectancy.
