A fabulous landscaping tree with superb golden fall color it is also a wonderful addition to a nut orchard. The nuts are sweet and crunchy.

The fruit of the ginkgo tree look like green cherries. The pulpy outer layer surrounds a light brown shell with a creamy white nut inside. These nuts are widely used in Asian cooking.

Ginkgo nuts are used in soups, stuffing’s, desserts, dishes containing meat and poultry, and vegetarian dishes, as well.
