Plant Food effect
When fed Plant Food, Durian explodes and deals damage to all zombies in a 3x3 area around it.
Durian is a defensive/offensive plant that should be handled with a lot of care.
Leave it in the front columns, and plant strong damaging plants like Dandelion and Bruce Bamboo in the back, maybe Spikeweed in front, but always hesitate on using Plant Food; it can be useful, but needs positioning, timing, and a good situation to use. Avoid treating this like a Wall-nut in terms of Plant Food, or you will waste 125 sun. You should try to use this plant as a support, and not as a primary offensive plant, since it can attack only when close to zombie and can be eaten up.
- In earlier versions of the game, Durian's sun cost was 135 sun, making it the second plant to have a sun cost that's not a multiple of 25, the first being Flame Mushroom, which originally costed 85.
- It is the only plant with a Plant Food ability that kills the plant.
- It functions in the same way as the Endurian, only that Endurian has less health.
