    Just so nobody else has to go through what I did, Gingko fruit is toxic!! Now, my big dogs have eaten it and I see the seeds in their poop and never thought in the 10 years we lived here that the tree is a problem. But my new puppy who was only 10 lbs ate a bunch of fruit (seeds and all) and she started having seizures. Also, another thing I learned.. wear gloves when picking up the fruit as it acts like poison ivy. [​IMG]

    Good to know, thanks for sharing. We've only planted Male trees, so never had a problem.

    Almost lost a dog to Sago Palm poisoning, but that's another story.......
