Brazilian Cherry Hardwood Floor: Basic

Oct 10th

A type of hardwood known as Brazilian cherry was used as a floor in countless houses from 2000 to 2005. In reality, this tree is not a member of the cherry family at all, but is instead a legume,  Hymenaea courbaril. It is also known as jatoba, carob or courbaril. The common name Brazilian cherry hardwood was a marketing tray used to play the wood’s burning deep red color. Brazilian cherries signed over-the-top grandiosity at once.

But while its popularity has somewhat faded, this beautiful tree is still a viable choice for flooring. Brazilian hardwood flooring is available in several forms, ranging from solid hardwood planks to similar plastic laminates. As the usual name implies, Brazilian cherries (Jatoba) hail from the rainforests of Brazil. It’s an extremely hard wood, with a Janka hardwood rating of 2350 (white oak has a Janka rating of 1360).
