Being on "Not Far From the Tree's" mailing list, i received a call-out for a gingko fruit tree pick. Gingko trees have fruit? i wondered. The road into our house is lined with these magnificent trees. However, i believe they must be the male trees, because i have never seen the pulpy fruit which has a smell which is " a cross between a rotten apricot and vomit." The fruit is apparently considered a delicacy, but the extract can also be considered poisonous if taken in excess.
Gingko also is used for many homeopathic reasons such as increased blood circulation, which may improve mobility as well memory and brain function.
