    Is there any English word to express "笋壳 (Sǔn k) ?"

    Some one tells me it can be "outer leaves of bamboo shoot", but I think it is too long. I want to use it in foreign trade business, so I try to find a easy expression. If anyone can tell me, that would be great. Thanks very much.

    I don't even know what exactly this thing is in Chinese. It's a shame.

    When bamboo is young, it has clothes out of the bamboo shoot. And when bamboo gets older, the clothes will turn grey. I want to know the name of the "clothes" in English. Do you know what I mean?

    It's quite clear. But I don't know anything about it.

    Maybe other forum members can offer some help.

    Could you just call them "young bamboo leaves"?

    HI,
    Please note I'm not a teacher nor a native speaker;

    After reading a wiki article on bamboo I came across the :

    "the pulpy wall"
    bamboo

    Hope it's what you looking for.

    Cheers
