A couple of interesting asides on the ginkgo tree:

Ginkgo biloba is the latin name for the tree. Ginkgo is from the Japanese word, 'ginkyo', loosely translated as "silver apricot", after the fruit's appearance. Biloba means "two lobed", referring to the bifurcated fan shape of the leaves.

The ginkgo tree also emits a strong odor that is strikingly like that of semen, leading to it's slang name of "cum tree".
