Use:The gingko is a firm, ornamental tree, resistant to all commonly known diseases. It is even resistant to pollution and radioactive radiation. To be found in parks and residential gardens more and more. Possibly still to be found in the wild in China, where it was looked upon as holy.

Ginkgo is neither a coniferous tree nor a deciduous tree, and thus occupies a unique position. 


Bloom. All months in which we can find blooming specimens. Regional differences may occur.
Harvest Time. All months in which we can find ripe fruits on trees. Unripe fruit can be found earlier on trees and shrubs. Sometimes even throughout the year, as happens with trees such as pines, this fruit ripens over several years.
Both flowers and ripe fruit may occur at the same time in some months.
