Darwin called ginkgo trees living fossils. In fall, they offer a fun splash of yellow to the colorful landscape. Today, we focus on their nuts! The outer shell may smell a bit funny, but inside is nothing but great flavor. Harvest ginkgo nuts from 10,000 trees at a famous production site and chow down with local farmers. Feast your eyes on traditional recipes, and discover how the nut is paired with champagne at a French restaurant in Tokyo. (Reporter: Zack Bullish)
