Brazilian Cherry is used in many homes, giving a rich warm glow to any room. Despite its name, the Brazilian Cherry hardwood is not from a cherry tree at all. Its rich reddish tones are reminiscent of an American Cherry, but in fact it is actually Jatoba. This wood originally comes from Brazilian rainforests, but is also found in other regions of South America in moist tropical climates. Many times this wood is used as a less expensive alternative to using teak and is sought after by discerning homeowners who want an expensive looking finish.
Why Brazilian Cherry Countertops
Brazilian Cherry is an extremely hard wood and also very beautiful. Its unique reddish hue sets it apart from other woods. Like a fine wine, Brazilian Cherry Countertops also get better with age. When Brazilian Cherry is fresh cut, the color may vary and appear lighter. After a finish is applied and with time, the color deepens into a deep reddish color. Brazilian Cherry countertops are prized for their strength and durability. For the same reasons it makes for a difficult wood to work with, it creates a resilient piece that will stand the test of time in your kitchen.
