Granadillo is a name given to many woods in Latin America, and for unknown reasons. Generally the wood is from the Platymiscium genus, from which many beautiful and durable woods come that are known by other names. The wood will be tight grained with good hardness and have a dark brown to reddish or purplish color, often with a nuanced variety and variegated pattern. But sometimes not.
