Default Guess the African Rhinohorn Bunch Size

I returned from a week in Alaska to find a bud emerging at about 12-foot height. It's partially obscured in this photo by a short flag leaf:



Guess the correct total number of fingers that form on my African Rhinohorn and win a prize. If no one guesses the correct number then the closest guess wins. If there are two "closest" guesses, then two prizes will be awarded.

The prize will be a 5-lb bag of 20-5-30 Banana Fuel or your choice of banana pup from those I have in nursery stock, including shipping via USPS, which includes most international locations.

Here are the official contest rules (PLEASE READ):
Rules of the contest forum, read before posting!
Good luck to all!
