The color of cherry heartwood (older wood present at the center) is pinkish to reddish-brown, while the surrounding sapwood is cream or yellow in color. Immediately after harvesting cherry trees, the wood has a lighter shade. With time, it darkens to deep reddish-brown, giving a more elegant look. In comparison to oak, maple and other hardwood alternatives, cherry wood is more pliable and flexible. At the same time, this attractive colored wood is strong and has also been found to be resistant to insects and fungi. All these cherry wood characteristics make it an excellent choice for flooring and home furniture.
