Brazilian cherry wood is truly jatoba, not a type of cherry and does not exclusively come from Brazil. The name comes from the beautiful deep red coloring which resembles the coloration of cherry wood. This wood is incredibly hard according to the Janka Scale. Jatoba is more expensive than other woods because of its coloring and hardness. Art Wood Floors installs Brazilian cherry flooring for homeowners across Wisconsin.
