Ginkgo biloba

 

Ginkgo, 20 seeds
Ginkgo biloba

Ginkgo trees are considered by some to be living fossils since they have apparently been on this Planet for 150 million years. This is a testament to their strength and endurance. These are fresh seeds and should be planted immediately upon receipt. The germination rate is about 40% and each tree is one sex so another tree of the opposite sex is required to produce fruit and more seeds. The trees cannot be sexed until mature so it is basically necessary to plant a number of trees if one wants seeds. Ginkgo leaves are used in medicine as an anti-radiation remedy as well as brain tonic. The fruit is delicious when roasted or used in a stir fry, but it has a rather unpleasant smell if it rots on the ground. If planting these trees, give them lots of room because they will be around for generations. Do study their needs since they do not like to be transplanted!
