Fruitscaping with Ginkgo Nut Trees
Ginkgo’s are thought of as living fossils and it has been said they watched the dinosaurs roam the earth. TheÂ ancient trees are now extinct in the wild, but has been propagated in China for at least a thousand years. 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. They add a wonderful texture to foods and much like soybeans, pick up the flavor of other ingredients. Ginkgo nuts are used in soups, stuffingâ€™s, desserts, dishes containing meat and poultry, and vegetarian dishes, as well.
The nuts and leaves contain compounds reputed to improve memory function.Â Any of our Ginkgo’s will make a beautiful shade tree for your yard. Just give your Ginkgo’s plenty of room as they can grow to approximately 40 feet by 30 feet for all varieties.

Here are some important things to know about your shipments
Unpacking Your Plants Guide:Â Â Prior to receiving our plants, please click this link to read our Unpacking Your Plants GuideÂ to get to know the steps to keeping your plant healthy after receiving it.
We do NOT ship bare root: Â Our trees are shipped in the same exact containers they are grown in, for the most healthy transition. The plants are watered well before they are packed and wrapped in a shipping bag to ensure they stay moist during transit.Â It’s as if you came and picked them up right from our nursery yourself!
Why do we not offer free shipping? At Just Fruits, we price all of our plants online exactly as we do in the nursery. Therefore, the shipping cost is simply what it costs for us to get your order from the nursery to you. Many competitors may increase the plants’ prices in order to hide shipping costs… we do not do that. We want our customers to see exactly what the plant costs are, separate from what the shipping costs are. That way if you decided to come visit the nursery to pick up your plants instead, you would know how much you save in shipping.
Weather Watching:Â Â We now ship all year round! However, we do watch for extreme weather. If there is extremely cold or hot weather expected around your shipment date and on your path of shipment, we will contact you and notify you that we plan to hold the shipment for the next possible shipping date with better conditions. If you ask us to still ship it, through the conditions, we will not be responsible for any damage caused to the plant & UPS will not refund any claims. We love our plants, and do not want to see them die, so we would rather wait until itâ€™s the right time to ship it, than risk losing a plant in transit.
