S. adiantifolia. - Maiden hair-leaved Salisburia. - An ornamental tree, not common. The largest tree in New England is probably on Boston Common, which was transplanted, when quite a large tree, from a private garden. "It is a large tree, remark-able for its fan-shaped leaves, cloven, like some of the Adiantum species. The fruit is a pale brown drupe, of a globular form, is yellow when ripe, with a fleshy, juicy, white pulp, adhering closely ' to the drupe, which is like that of the apricot. The kernel is white, rather firm, sweet, with a mixture of austerity or bitterness when raw, but agreeable when roasted." It is sometimes called the Japan Jingo or Ginko tree.
