Ginkgo biloba 'Munchkin' is one of three selections made by Gary Handy from variants of 'Chris's Dwarf', which has shown some instability in cultivation. (The other two are Mighty Munchkin' and 'Munchkinot'). 'Munchkin' was established by him to keep the characteristics that 'Chris's Dwarf' originally was supposed to have, true to type and form. Therefore a ‘Munchkin’ was a selection of ‘Chris’s Dwarf’ then can legitimately be considered synonymous, with the prevision if it retains the same characteristics
