Brazilian Cherry (Jatoba) "Hymenaea courbaril"

Brazilian Cherry (AKA Jatoba) is a tropical hardwood that primarially originates from Brazil and is known for its beautiful orange/red brown coloration that has made it a staple in the hardwood flooring industry.

From the 1990’s and into the 2000’s Brazilian Cherry was a really popular item and riding this popularity it became a household name in the hardwood flooring industry. In the past Brazilian Cherry was shipped to the United States and manufactured into hardwood flooring here. More recently, the flooring industry in Brazil started expanding and lot of the commodity sizes started being manufactured there while the custom jobs were still made in the US. photo 3

It is still being used for custom flooring jobs in the United States today, as well as for other purposes that include furniture, cabinetry, tool handles, shipbuilding, railroad ties, turned objects, and other specialty items. 

While it is a beautiful reddish wood that resembles Cherry it is not in the Cherry family, but the Legume family of woods.  

We currently stock Brazilian Cherry in 4/4”, 5/4” and 8/4” thickness at our Cove City, NC facility. While the 5/4” and 8/4” are random widths on all of our stock, we do separate some strips in our 4/4” when possible to improve the yield for flooring jobs.
