Videos: Ginkgo rain, leaves all fall at the same time

The leaves of Ginkgo trees can all fall in a short period of time, sometimes in one or two hours! This is recorded in many parts of the world in fall. A selection (from YouTube, thanks to all videomakers!) is presented in a playlist I made of "Ginkgo Day" videos. Come back soon to see more videos.

Ginkgo seeds New York Botanical Garden

Judy Glattstein writes in her garden diary:
"For whatever reason, the trees in the Watson Building parking lot at The New York Botanical Garden are female. ...And this year they are fruiting prolifically. Ginkgo fruits are edible. My friend Nihei san, told me that his wife would gather them wearing plastic gloves, wash away the pulp in a bucket of water. Then microwave 8 or so nuts at a time, for Nihei san to eat as a snack while watching television.....
I decided to make chawan mushi, a savory egg custard with little treasures hidden within. ..."
