Hey guys I got permission to hunt a old over grown farmstead, it has timber near by and their is always deer filtering into the farmstead, I think I might have found out why, are these persimmon or what? I thought they were but when attached to the tree there is not a blossom by the branch, like I seen from pics of persimmon, instead they are suspended. They smell like S**T, literally, my wife made me take a shower when I got home. can't tell if deer are going over to the tree due to the grass, makes it hard to tel. Anyway sorry about the long post, but what are these??

100% Ginko Biloba. Those smell like dog poo for sure. Had Botany in College and our professor opened one up. Unmistakable.

They have been cultured around Chinese temples for centuries and they can the berries. :pukey:

The tree can only be started by rooting a cutting, so who ever propagated it should have known they were cloning a female tree. They have some of these on the campus where I work. The trees will shed almost ALL of their leaves in one day.

Sounds like a good gag gift. You could have some fun with these.
