Persimmon Wood Slabs
Persimmon lumber typically includes very wide sapwood, with a small core of black heartwood. When freshly cut, sapwood is creamy white and darkens to a creamy grayish brown. The heartwood is brown to black, or variegated black brown and creamy pale colors. Persimmon is a true ebony related to the prestigious Macassar and African black ebony. We have our persimmon sorted into two categories a “black heart” and regular persimmon. The black heart persimmon has a large portion of heartwood displaying awesome contrast similar to the south east Asian black and white ebony.
