Customers Rating:
California Cherry uses Prunus serotina root stock which is fast growing and hardy grafted to the sweet cherry (Prunus avium) to yield delicious and abundant cherries.  Prunus serotina is commonly called black cherry, wild black cherry, rum cherry, or mountain black cherry. Prunus avium is a European species that has been cultivated since roughly 800 BC.  The wood produced is hard, reddish-brown (like commercial cherry wood) and is valued as a hardwood for wood turning, making cabinets, musical instruments and more. Cherry wood is also used for smoking foods, particularly meats, in North America, as it lends a distinct and pleasant flavor to the product.  Young trees of both species have a straight trunk and symmetrical conical crown, becoming rounded to irregular on old trees.  They grow to heights of 50-100’ tall with diameters of 1-1/2 – 5 feet.  The bark is smooth purplish-brown with prominent horizontal grey-brown lenticels on young trees, becoming thick dark blackish-brown and fissured on old trees.  This is a beautiful batch of very colorful Cherry!  The end grain of these blocks shows fine color stripes with nice figured patterns.  The color in all of this wood is wonderful with some very outstanding marbled and grafted pieces as well.

Kiln dried, surfaced on 2 sides. Some gum pockets, hairline checks, rough edges present in some.
