any hope for this Ice Cream pseudostem?

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
