Ginkgo biloba – a deciduous, bicameral tree (there are male and female plants), grows up to 35 m in height and over 2 m in trunk diameter. The fruits ripen in the fall on the female trees and have an unpleasant smell. This is why male trees are preferred for planting in horticulture. It loves a sunny position, withstands low temperatures up to -25 ⁰C, and is resistant to diseases and insects, drought and frost, it’s also not disturbed by city pollution. Ginkgo survived an atomic bomb dropped in Hiroshima and had no radiation damage.
