Ginkgo nuts are edible.....but only in small quantities. Chinese folklore
(or so I am told) says that you can eat something like 10 or 20 of the
nuts, but thats it!! After that you will get very sick.
So I guess you better stick with the more conservative value of 10!!!!
Ginkgo nuts can be purchased at some Chinese Import groceries.
