any hope for this Ice Cream pseudostem?

jeff-n-jessaJune 26, 2007

Hi - I bought this Ice Cream banana from Stokes. It arrived in pretty bad shape (UPS took an extra day to deliver it, and crushed the box as well). My question: will this pseudostem survive? I know the rhizome is probably OK, and a new pseudostem will pop up, but our growing season is short I'd like it to survive. Stokes is shipping a replacement, BTW.

There is no "leading leaf" coming out (don't know what the real term for the little leaf that grows out from the middle).

Thanks, Jeff

Just let it be and let nature take its' course.
