Zapote - Pouteria sapota
Zapote is a very hard and dense wood. It's color varies from a deep, solid reddish-brown to a light reddish-orange, and often a combination of both colors. Sapwood is cream in color, and makes for a nice contrast against all the red hues. It is normal for Zapote to contain sometimes gum pockets.
