Planet of the Grapes is a galactic uncommon plant environment card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Smarty class. It costs 2 to play, and its ability gives the plant hero a card every time a plant in it hurts the zombie hero.
Its name a portmanteau of Planet of the Apes, a science fiction movie franchise about a world in which humans and intelligent apes clash for control, and "grapes," referring to the grapes seen in the environment.
The destroyed "Statue of Liberty" berry seen in the card is a reference to the movie's famous twist, where the sight of a destroyed Statue of Liberty makes the protagonist realize they have been on Earth all along.

- Added to the game.
This environment is a simple way for Smarty heroes to draw more cards as the only plant in the Smarty class that can draw cards is Magic Beanstalk, which is only playable via Sow Magic Beans or Moonbean.
Due to the fact that this is an environment, it is best to have plants with Team-Up to double its ability's effectiveness, allowing you to draw two cards instead of one. However, this ability only activates if plants here hurt the zombie hero. Thankfully, you can use Admiral Navy Bean in that environment and then for each bean you play, you can damage to the zombie hero directly, resulting in more card draw. Another good plant to use is Sportacus, as it will damage the zombie hero every time they play a trick or even a superpower, drawing a card unless they get a Super-Block.
Each hero has their way of using this environment well:
- Nightcap can use Astro-Shroom and then spam cheap plants to easily draw cards. While Planet of the Grapes is typically run in a deck with Astro-Shroom to pull this combo of anyways, he can Conjure this environment from High-Voltage Currant.
- Rose can use either Heartichoke and then spam healing cards to draw cards or use Strikethrough plants to draw cards every time they attack.
- Citron and Beta-Carrotina can use Mirror-Nut to draw cards should the zombie hero damage any of their nut plants. They can also use plants with Bullseye to ensure that they do unblockable damage while drawing cards.
- Perhaps the best hero to use this is Green Shadow, as she has access to the most beans, allowing her to activate Admiral Navy Bean's ability easily if it was played on Planet of the Grapes. She can also play plants with the Double Strike trait on the environment to easily draw more cards. This works even better with Bananasaurus Rex as her first attack will hit the zombie hero and draw a card, causing her to grow stronger and resulting in the bonus attack to be stronger. She can also use Threepeater and Shooting Starfruit to damage her oppnent in multiple lanes and draw multiple cards, one per lane.
Even though this environment doesn't seem like a threat, you still have to be careful with plants that can do direct damage like Admiral Navy Bean as it can allow the plant hero to draw more cards easily, especially when against Green Shadow. If you can, try to destroy plants in that environment to prevent them from drawing more cards. If there are plants that have no synergy in that environment, you can block them with any zombie as this environment only works if a plant hurts the zombie hero. If these situations do not work, resort to replacing it with one of your environments. You can alternatively play Planetary Gladiator to redirect all damage dealt by you to him, neglecting a card draw as a result.
If you are a Beastly hero, you can use a Squirrel Herder to destroy this environment.
- Its card description makes a pun, with the word "ape" (or possibly "great") replaced by the word "grape."
- Its code name is "Tactical Position."
- The card's icon and environment lane show a grape from Grapes of Wrath and another from Sour Grapes being the inhabitants of the huts.
- However, neither of these two cards are from the Smarty class, but rather in the Kabloom class instead.
- The Sour Grapes also uses its beta face.
- When this environment is replaced, the player can see the grapes scattering from the lane.
- Sometimes, the spear images will stay still even if this environment's ability activation has finished. This might be a glitch.
