The color of the Jatoba is truly one-of-a-kind. While its sapwood provides a pinkish-white hue, its heartwood ranges from pinkish-brown to reddish-brown. Known for being lustrous and having a fine grain from time to time, its mix of shades makes it a very natural and elegant choice.
- Its natural resistance and durability properties against rot, decay, and insects.
- The long lifespan of over 50 years
- The Jatoba exudes a resin named copal or jutaicica used to make varnish.
- The passage of time provides it with a particular appearance that gives rise to its nickname: “Brazilian Cherry”.

- Jatoba is the favorite on furniture, cabinetry, and other small specialty items.
- Its Class A rating for fire, comparable to steel and concrete.
