Lemonwood or Degame (Calycophyllum candidissimum) grows naturally in Cuba and ranges from southern Mexico to Colombia and Venezuela. The large tree can grow up to diameters of 30 in., its wood is very fine, straight grained and shows intensive yellow colour. The physical properties make it very suited for archery bows, cues, fishing rods and tool handles: it is highly flexible with high bending and crushing strengths, moderate stiffness and shock resistance. Lemonwood is used very much like boxwood for technical purposes as rules and scales, organ parts, flooring and cabinetry as it looks very much like true boxwood.
