Manchurian Walnut, also known as Chinese Walnut, is one of the most sought after Asian exotic hardwood flooring varieties in the country. The heartwood is a beautiful combination of browns and yellows, while the sapwood is a pale gray. The hallmark of the species is its tight grain pattern and occasional burls, which gives the wood its dramatic, exotic appearance. The species is also commonly used in the construction and manufacturing of high-end furniture and art pieces.

Manchurian Walnut is not only beautiful, it is also has the durability you would expect from an exotic hardwood flooring material. It has a Janka hardness rating of 1,010 pounds, and its density and tight grain makes it naturally resistant to wood rot and boring insects.
