Bocote is a small to medium tropical tree with sharply pointed leaves, small, fragrant, showy flowers, and edible fruits.
With its striking, zebra-like contrasts, and bold figuring, bocote wood can be very eye-catching. It has a yellowish brown body with dramatic dark brown to almost black stripes. Its grain patterns tend to be interlocked, its texture medium and uniform, and its natural lustre results from being slightly oily to the touch.
