Hi Jimmy,

I'm thinking that are mean Ginkgo biloba aka Ginko biloba or Ginkgo tree. These trees have male and female plants. The fruit of the female is extremely smelly so most sold in the trade are male trees grafted on rootstock to assure that they don't produce smelly fruit. If you have a female tree or seeds, you can plant the seeds but you won't know for about 20 years, until it blooms, if it's a male or a female.
