Ginkgo biloba

The fertilization of eggs by spermatozoids in seed plants was first discovered by Sakugoro Hirase, who used ovules from a female tree of Ginkgo biloba, a primitive gymnosperm, plant in the Botanical Gardens. This was an epoch-making achievement during the early days of modern botanical research in Japan. (reference by http://www.bg.s.u-tokyo.ac.jp/koishikawa/overview/memorial.html)
