Jatoba is also known as Brazilian Cherry. It’s a native wood of Brazil, and comes from certified managed forests. Jatoba has similar looking characteristics to that of our domestic cherry, but is much harder. It has a slight red tinge which deepens to a deep red when the wood is fully matured. Jatoba is a very durable wood and is much harder than any domestic wood we produce.
