The official name of this plant is Horsebean. However, a literal translation can be found in its infobox. The official name is to be used on all pages that refer to this plant.

Horsebean (蚕豆突击队; pinyin: cándòu tújí duì) is the fourth plant obtained in Sky City in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. The beans that are inside the pod fly towards a nearby zombie. Then, they start shooting peas at it. After attacking the zombie, the beans fly back into the pod and must recharge before they can attack again.

While they take a while to recharge, they are a strong plant, and are good in many worlds outside of Sky City, although Sky City and Big Wave Beach are a bit more ideal due to them being airborne. Costing as much as Carrot Missile Truck, they provide more damage per second, so they are a good choice for Sky City levels, and also decent for others. Overall, they may need to get some defensive and supportive plants to work nicely.



  • They, Carrot Missile Truck, and Flame Flower Queen are the only plants with the sun cost of 450.
    • Coincidentally, they all have mediocre recharges.
  • In the iOS version of the game, the Almanac entry erroneously states that Horsebean can absorb thunderbolts, which is Anthurium's ability.
    • This was fixed in the Android release.
  • They have the longest time Plant Food effect, which lasts for one minute.
    • The second longest can be Magnifying Grass, but Magnifying Grass' Plant Food effect depends on the amount of sun-producers that are on the lawn when it is fed Plant Food.
    • Horsebean however, does not have damage immunity granted when given Plant Food.
  • They and Skyshooter are the only flying peashooting plants.
  • They, Green Shadow, Sting Bean and The Podfather are the only peashooting plants which do not have either "shooter" and/or "pea" in their name.
  • If the Horsebean's Peas are flying around whilst the carrier is being destroyed, all the Horsebean peas will also be destroyed, regardless of Plant Food.
