Fruit Trees > Nut Trees > Ginkgo Tree

The Ginkgo tree is used extensively as a landscape tree due to its picturesque, unusual shaped crown and autumn coloured foliage. The trees become large making them ideal shade trees. The trees can take around 20-30 years to bear nuts, however grafted trees may bear in as little as 8 years.

The sweet nuts taste like a large pine nut, a cross between potatoes and sweet chestnuts when baked. The outer coat of the fresh seeds contain oils that may cause mild dermatitis in some humans, so when picking them up wear latex gloves. The seeds are usually steamed until the hard shell cracks open, then the kernel removed and eaten like pistacho nuts, or used in pilaf, porridges, soups, vegetable dishes or mixed with rice, tofu, mushrooms and stir-fried vegetables.

Gingko Tree

You should endeavour to palnt them well away from the house, or at least well downwind, as the but is covered with an apricot like fruit which smells much like animal dung. This becomes more intense when the fruit is lying on the ground ripening.

Gingko Tree

The tree did not move for 5 years and then, it just took off. From 1 metre to 6 metres in the next 5. Beautiful form, graceful, fluttering, advocado coloured leaves in Spring, turning bright yellow in Winter fall. Tea made from leaves is a brain tonic.
