Ginkgo Autumn March 2015 Photography
Attractive colourful Ginkgo Biloba trees among the Fernery corner of Ballarat Botanical garden, first time I saw it fruiting in 2015 since I live here.
Profile Safety Eating Guide:
“Eating limitation more than 10 raw or cooked nuts in a day may cause 4’-O-methylpyridoxine (Ginkgotoxin) poisoning. Ginkgotoxin interferes with pyridoxine (vitamin B-6) metabolism and the symptoms may include stomachache, nausea, vomiting, nervous irritability, convulsions and sometimes death. The toxicity and symptoms, however, can be reversed by taking pyridoxine supplements.” Source:http://www.nutrition-and-you.com/ginkgo-nuts.html
