Ginkgo biloba is the only current species in the Ginkgoaceae family. The ginkgo is considered a living fossil. It is the oldest known family of trees, since it appeared more than 270 Ma ago. It already existed around forty million years before the appearance of the dinosaurs. Its leaves are unique, since they are formed of two palm-shaped lobes and do not have a central vein like almost all modern plants. The leaves turn a magnificent golden yellow color in autumn. It is a slow growing tree, of good size, very hardy, resistant to pollution, diseases and parasites. It adapts well to different types of soil although it prefers fertile, clayey-sandy soil. Ginkgo is popular for planting in cities but needs full light to grow well. The female trees produce yellowish fruits with a strong odor but inside there is an edible and palatable kernel after being roasted in the oven. The ginkgo is undoubtedly one of the most remarkable trees that we must plant.TECHNICAL SHEET COMING SOON.
