petiole's dismally a little short
signs of petiole scarification suggesting that there are probably approx 10 flushes prior to this
stipular regions and the base of the petiole exhibits strong signs of lignification...
differential coloration between leaves as well....

hmm..

1) gushu or plantation?
2) which season?
3) pure or blended?

If I correctly understood, that cuts on the petiole zone, is the sign of harvests previous to this? What lignification suggests?
Could you confirm that the midrib zone, is different between those leaves?
