Astrocado is a galactic legendary plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Solar IconSolar class. It costs 5SunPvZH to play, and has 5StrengthPvZH/3HeartPvZH. It has the PvZH Strikethrough IconStrikethrough trait, and its ability adds an Astrocado Pit into the plant hero's hand when it is destroyed.


It is based on the fruit of an avocado, a member of the the flowering plant family Lauraceae.

Its name is a portmanteau of the prefix "astro-," referring to it being in the Galactic Gardens set, and "avocado," the real-life plant it is based on.

Its ability is probably a reference to the phoenix, a legendary bird that will rebirth into a egg once destroyed and hatch into a phoenix back again, with Astrocado Pit being the egg and Astrocado being the phoenix.

  • Description change: Was originally Getting defeated is the pits.



While Astrocado's stats are average to bad for a 5-sun legendary plant, its PvZH Strikethrough IconStrikethrough trait allows it to give a good beating to your opponent hiding behind a tanky zombie. However, its ability is the real deal; even if your opponent succeeds in destroying it, it will return as a 1-sun plant that only needs a turn of survival to wreak havoc again. It can constantly regenerate itself practically indefinitely, making it a powerful addition to any deck.

Since its ability counts as Conjuring a card, you can also activate Dino-Roar abilities such as Tricarrotops or Bananasaurus Rex's, excluding Solar Flare since neither of her classes have any Dino-Roar cards.

Each hero can use Astrocado in their own way:

  • Wall-Knight can cards such as Photosynthesizer to boost its health, allowing it to stay alive for longer or protect it and Astrocado Pit with tough Team-Up plants such as Wall-Nut.
  • Solar Flare can play Pair Pearadise and then this plant to effectively do double the damage on the zombie hero or use Sunburn to play this earlier. She can also use cards such as Berry Angry to make it hit harder and do insane damage.
  • Rose can Freeze or Bounce zombies that threaten Astrocado.
  • Chompzilla can boost its stats with Fertilize or Plant Food (which also makes Astrocado do a bonus attack) to make it even more threatening and harder to take down. She can also play Captain Cucumber since if Astrocado is destroyed, it will Conjure a card into her hand, making it cheaper.

However, note that Rocket Science and Cut Down to Size can destroy it easily, as well as damaging tricks like Zombot's Wrath. Even if it "resurrects," letting it fall easily is bad for you, as you will need to spend your resources just to bring it back.


Since it has only 5StrengthPvZH/3HeartPvZH, there are a few solutions for you to destroy it without getting hurt by it, such as Rocket Science, Zombot's Wrath, or a string of other tricks. You can also PvZH Frozen IconFreeze it with Frosty Mustache or Ice Pirate to stall this plant for a turn. Take note that it will give your opponent an Astrocado Pit once you successfully destroy it, so if you do not destroy Astrocado Pit, you will have to destroy Astrocado again, wasting your cards.

You can also play Quickdraw Con Man to do 1 unblockable damage to your opponent on top of destroying Astrocado.
