Ginkgo Seedling Tree: Embrace Ancient Wonder

About the Fruit

Delve into the past with the Ginkgo Seedling Tree, a living fossil that dates back over 270 million years. Revered for its unique fan-shaped leaves and regarded as a symbol of longevity and resilience, the Ginkgo tree produces a fruit that is truly a marvel of nature. Though the fruit’s outer layer can produce an unpleasant odor when fallen, the inner nut, when cooked, is celebrated in many cultural delicacies for its subtle almond-like flavor.

What to Know About the Tree

The Ginkgo Seedling Tree is a breathtaking specimen that will add a touch of prehistoric elegance to any garden. This deciduous tree boasts a tall, graceful form that can reach heights of 35-50 feet. In the spring and summer, its lush green foliage creates a serene canopy, which then transforms into a brilliant golden-yellow display in the fall. The Ginkgo is also known for its exceptional tolerance to urban environments and its resistance to pests and diseases, making it a hassle-free addition to your landscape.

Harvest Season

As the autumn leaves begin to turn, the Ginkgo tree’s fruit ripens to a soft, plum-like texture, signaling that it’s time for harvest. While the fruit is not commonly sought after in Western cultures, it presents an opportunity for the adventurous gardener to explore and experiment with this rare and nutritious delicacy.

Fruitscape™ with Ginkgo Trees

Immerse yourself in the timeless beauty of Fruitscaping™ with our Ginkgo Trees. These living fossils, unchanged for over 200 million years, bring a touch of prehistoric majesty to your garden, coupled with unmatched fall color and intriguing characteristics.

Ginkgo Trees captivate with their unique fan-shaped leaves, which transition through vibrant hues of green, gold, and even hints of bronze in the fall. Their distinct foliage creates a breathtaking display, making them a focal point in any landscape. Beyond their striking appearance, Ginkgo Trees are known for their resilience, adaptability, and low-maintenance nature.

Preferring a sunny location with well-drained soil, Ginkgo Trees thrive in conditions where their soil requirements are met. They prefer slightly acidic to neutral soil with a pH range of 5.0-6.5, which provides optimal conditions for their growth and nutrient uptake. They are remarkably tolerant of different soil types, including sandy, loamy, and clay soils, making them suitable for various garden settings.

Ginkgo Trees are dioecious, meaning they have separate male and female trees. The female trees produce small, fleshy, and fruit-like structures called “ovules,” which contain seeds. These fruits have a distinct odor when they fall and can be messy, so many gardeners prefer to plant male cultivars, which do not produce fruit.

Beyond their ornamental value, Ginkgo Trees have been revered for their cultural significance and medicinal properties. They symbolize longevity, resilience, and strength in many cultures, while Ginkgo leaf extracts are used in herbal remedies and supplements.

Embark on a journey of timeless beauty and Fruitscape™ with Ginkgo Trees. Whether you seek a stunning landscape specimen, a source of fall color, or a living testament to the ancient world, these majestic trees will captivate your senses and become cherished additions to your garden.
