Spectrum for 13 May 2012

From Spectrum, 12:05 pm on 13 May 2012

The distinctive vomit-like smell of ripe fruit from a Ginkgo tree is enough to put most people off harvesting it. But each Autumn, members of the Asian community can be seen shaking the leaves of trees. For Bay of Plenty couple Graham and Mavis Dyer, who watched nuts being knocked to the ground, curiosity proved too much and they tried growing Ginkgos. Join Spectrum's Lisa Thompson as she meets the Dyers and explores why they might not be so nuts after all.
