Icy Currant (寒冰醋栗: pinyin: Hán bīng cù lì) is a plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2 introduced in the 2.2.4 update alongside Electric Peashooter and Hot Date. Like Electric Currant, two Icy Currants on the same lane or column will generate an ice wall that slow down zombies. He can attack zombies by creating an ice tile on his tile that slows zombies down to defend himself.
His name is combination of the words "icy," referring his ability and appearance and "currant," the real-life plant he based on.
