Granadillo is a fine South American hardwood of the Platymiscium family of trees. Often used as an alternative to Cocobolo or true rosewoods, Granadillo lacks the oily texture and allergic nature of these more traditional fine woods. Granadillo is primarily used in fine furniture and the creation of instruments..
