No,the sperm is carried by animals , birds, or insecs,that´s called zoidiogamie.
The spore was  Dino- carryed.
And there are a lot of female Ginkos on this planet. There are in  SO-China and
Japan, where the fruit of the female Ginko is a delikatesse. In other places
threre are no female Ginkos becaue the fresh fruits smells afull like butteracid,
which was very tasty for dino´s.
