Potato Mine

Potato Mine is a passive attack piece that deals 175 to any zombies that step on it.

Pizzazzling Potato Mine (GW2 only)

The Pizzazzling Potato Mine is an alternate ability that's basically a reskin of the Potato Mine, it has no difference except it's golden, surrounded by gems, and releases glitter when detonated.

Garlic Drone

Garlic Drone is a drone with five health. It is armed with the Needle Shot and a Corn Strike.

Tallnut Battlement

Tallnut Battlement is a wall of two Tall-nuts and two Wall-nuts held together by vines. It can be used to stall zombies or provide cover.

Potato Nugget Mine

An alternate ability of Potato Mine, Potato Nugget Mine is smaller and does less damage. However, it is easier to camouflage and the player can place more of them at once compared to Potato Mine.

Artichoke Drone

An alternate ability of Garlic Drone, Artichoke Drone has 20 health instead of the Garlic Drone's five, armed with the Artichoke Hearts and Baby Corn attack.

Iron Maiden

An alternate ability of Tallnut Battlement, Iron Maiden is an armored Wall-nut and hard to destroy. It is much stronger than the Tallnut Battlement; its only downside is its short width.


Consider Citrus Cactus to be a Sun Pharaoh with much longer range. Her weapon fires three consecutive shots in a burst, which can deal a lot of damage if they all hit critically. Combine this with the abilities of the Cactus class, and you have a ranged powerhouse who can lock down points on the map as she pleases, along with the firepower to stay there.

Citrus Cactus


  • She is the second Cactus that does not shoot needles, the first one being Future Cactus.
  • Once the player unlocks her, they will get all the upgrades without having to get them. The same happens with Berry Shooter, Plasma Pea, Chester Chomper, and Dr. Chester.
  • She and Berry Shooter are the only plants in the game that shoot fruit rather than peas or needles. Berry Shooter shoots blueberries and it is related to berry fruits while this plant shoots oranges and is related to the fruit orange.
  • She is one of the four characters to be sponsored by a product, with the others being Berry Shooter, Chester Chomper, and Dr. Chester.
    • In this case, she is sponsored by Aquafina FlavorSplash flavored drinks.
  • In her old description, it said that the Citrus Cactus was male.
    • In an unknown update, the description was changed to refer to the Citrus Cactus being a female, most likely to have this remain true to the class' gender, respectively.
  • She and Citron are the only plants based on oranges.
  • Along with Berry Shooter, Chester Chomper and Dr. Chester, she did not return in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 because she was a promotional character.
