Brazilian Cherry Jatoba Herring bone Natural

Jatoba - Brazilian Cherry

Jatoba, also known as Brazilian Cherry, scientific name: Hymenaea Courbaril, is a huge tropical tree from South America up to 30 meters high.

Of the many cultural riches Brazil possesses, it boasts the most incredible collection of plants found anywhere on the planet. Its Jatoba hardwood tree, in particular, stands out as one of the best-known exotic species. Considered the ultimate in luxurious flooring, Jatoba hardwood flooring is highly prized for its dramatic orange to salmon red colour.  

Jatoba wood is extremely hard, scoring 2350 on the Janka Hardness Scale. That makes Jatoba hardwood almost twice as hard as strong, resilient red oak, which is the benchmark against which all other wood species are compared for relative hardness. Jatoba's hardness translates into excellent durability when resisting scratches, dents, and patterns from foot traffic.

In addition to durability, Jatoba hardwood is sought mostly for its incomparable beauty. When freshly cut, the hardwood ranges in colour from salmon red to orange-brown. Seasoned by age, Jatoba hardwood eventually darkens to a deeper russet red that is often marked with dark brown streaks. An overall golden lustre adds a layer of depth that makes Jatoba hardwood dramatic and breathtaking.
