I don't think you can bake AO successfully with this object, it works great most of the time and it would work great if the leaves were all separate objects (thousands of them with thousands of separate textures)...

The quickest render method I can think of that would be sort of appropriate would be to use Fresnel (you'd want to invert the knots in the fresnel so it was black on the left of the gradient and white on the right) in the Diffusion channel instead of AO, the result would not be as 'real' as AO but would give you, hopefully, the leaf definition you are looking for.
