(Maidenhair tree) An extremely hardy tree, resistant to pollution and disease notable for its attractive fan-shaped leaves. In the West, the male tree is preferred because the female produces a foul-smelling fruit. However, the fruit contains a delicious nut which is a delicacy in China roasted or added to rice dishes. Medicinally, ginkgo is rapidly gaining a reputation as a brain tonic. According to recent European studies, the leaf extract increases blood supply to the brain and improves neural functioning and memory. Seeds take 3 to 12 months to germinate. Thrives in a wide variety of soil conditions and full sun. Height 50-80 feet.
