Ginkgo, otherwise known as the gingko tree or maidenhair tree, is native to China. In China Gingko can be found in fossils dating back over 250 million years. This thick, towering tree has great spiritual importance across Asia, symbolising longevity and enlightenment. The name ‘ginkgo’ comes from a misspelling of the Japanese word 'Gin Kyo,' which means ‘silver apricot’, while a similar, older Chinese name means ‘silver fruit’.
For centuries, ginkgo biloba has been used as a traditional source of nutrition and wellbeing. Herbalists value ginkgo biloba for a wide variety of uses, from supporting the immune system to maintaining normal memory. Ginkgo Biloba has been cultivated in China for many centuries, and some trees at temples are thought to be more than 1,500 years old.
The tree itself is magnificent, reaching heights of up to 115ft, with beautiful saffron-yellow autumn leaves. Ginkgo Biloba’s seeds are a celebrated food in China, and its nuts are a delicacy often enjoyed during celebrations such as weddings and New Year. The first record of Westerners encountering the tree date back to 1690, at Japanese temple gardens, and it is now a popular addition to a balanced, healthy lifestyle across the world.
