Machiche (Lonchocarpus castilloi), Black Cabbagbark, grows almost all over tropical South America, particularly good in the Caribbean, Yucatan (Mexico) and Guatemala, where it is widespread in humid forests. The wood has many popular names in its growing areas: Machiche, Balche (Mexico), Chaperno (Costa Rica, Panama, Guatemala), Guaimaro, Marajagua (Venezuela), Macaratu (Colombia), Sindjaple (Suriname), Haiari (Guyana), Barbasco (Peru), Imbira de sapo, Timbo (Brazil). In Europe it is marketed under the completely misleading name Caribbean Cherry - a typical euphemism of the timber trade. The hard and heavy wood (approx. 900 kg/m3) is red to coffee brown, the sapwood pale yellow to ochre. The grain is homogeneous and simple, sometimes streaked with black to golden brown stripes. The pores are medium in size, the grain mostly straight. The wood is very durable and resistant to insect attack. Machiche is used as construction wood, outdoor furniture, parquet, floor coverings, terrace decks, turner's goods as well as in furniture construction.
