The Snow Pea is a pea-shooting plant with slowing ability. Its frozen peas can slow down most zombies. Torchwoods can melt its peas, taking away the freezing effect. It is the most common freezing plant in the Plants vs. Zombies series.


Plants vs. Zombies

Snow Pea is unlocked after beating Level 1-6. It is the second regular offensive plant received in this game. It does the same amount of damage as the Peashooter (one normal damage shot per pea), but has a slowing effect to zombies upon contact. It is also one of the three plants that can slow down zombies by freezing them (the other two being the Winter Melon and Ice-shroom).

Plants vs. Zombies Adventures

Snow Pea is obtained after the player reclaims The Post Office Lot. It is used against Rocket Zombie. Its rocket will be removed after getting hit by Snow Pea. Snow Pea can also remove Gas Can Zombie's cigar to prevent it explodes. Unlike in Plants vs. Zombies, it does more damage than Peashooter. In this game, Snow Pea has a VIP version, which is Ice Queen Pea.

Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time

Snow Pea returns in this game with the same functionality. However, it is a Premium plant, required to be purchased with real-life money.

Plant Food Upgrade

The Snow Pea leaves a icy trail on the lane in front of it slowing down every zombie on the lane and shoots 60 frozen peas, like a Peashooter fed with Plant Food. After 3.5 seconds, the effect stops and the ice trail disappears.

Level upgrade (Chinese version only)

Level 2: Snow Pea has a 15% chance to shoot an ice pick that deals 3 damage. Also, its attack power and health will increase by 50%.

Level 3: Snow Pea has now a 30% chance to shoot an ice pick. Its attack power and health will increase again by 50% (total +100% = 2x.)

Costumed (Chinese version only)

When given Plant Food, it shoots three big snow peas that deals 30 damage each.

Plant Snow Peas anywhere you would plant Peashooters. They have the same damage and rate of fire as a Peashooter, but since they slow zombies down, they do more damage to a zombie over time. Slowed zombies move and eat about half as fast as regular zombies of their type. It slows down most zombies but cannot slow down the Screen Door Zombie, Ladder Zombie, (unless the screen door or ladder is destroyed) and the Zomboni. The slowing effect lasts for a while even after the Snow Pea has been eaten.


Plants vs. Zombies


A Frozen Pea

Standard Levels

A single column of Snow Peas will slow down the incoming horde of zombies. Multiple Snow Peas in a single lane don't perform much better, as the slowing effect does not stack, so unless you're getting them for free, there's probably no need to plant more than one per lane as they will cost more sun. Of course, having multiple is helpful when zombies eat one, as they will remain slowed. On the roof levels, Snow Peas cannot shoot over the roof's edge unless they are in the first sloped column, so they are not too too useful.  Snow Peas and Kernel-pults work well in conjunction with Wall-nuts or Tall-nuts and Spikeweed or Spikerock. Slowing the zombies down will allow more time for the spikes to do damage to the zombies.

Note that if a frozen pea passes through the flame of a Torchwood, it will thaw into a regular pea. Furthermore, a slowed zombie hit with a flaming pea will thaw, so it is generally unwise to use Snow Peas in the same lanes as Torchwoods. But if two Torchwoods are placed in the same row where a Snow Pea is planted, the frozen pea will turn into a flaming pea.


Snow Pea in the Zen Garden

If you still wish to use a Snow Pea with a Torchwood, you could place the Snow Pea in front of the Torchwood. However, the normal flaming peas will still thaw its target, making it relatively useless in this situation. Also, once Winter Melons become available, it may be a good idea to replace Snow Peas in favor of the damage and splash slowing effect.

Slot Machine mini-game

You cannot really control when you get Snow Peas, but try to spread them out, one per lane, until you have at least one in each lane. It depends on your luck when you get them or not.

I, Zombie Endless

These are among your worst enemies. You can put down Ladder Zombies to negate the freezing effect, but look out for Magnet-shrooms and Fume-shrooms. You can also use a cheap zombie to distract the Snow Pea and then place a Football Zombie. If the lane has a Wall-nut or Tall-nut, try to put a ladder on it first.

Plants vs. Zombies Adventures

The Snow Pea is a particularly helpful plant in the Plants vs. Zombies Adventures environment. It costs only 25 sun more than a Peashooter and is the only regular plant that can slow down zombies. It is a very helpful support-offensive plant, being compatible with every plant, even Flaming Pea. It also helps by being the weakness of Rocket Zombies and Gas Can Zombies .

However, the Snow Pea is not perfect and has some technical difficulties. While the Snow Pea's projectiles deal more damage and slow down zombies, it is unlikely anything stronger than a Conehead Zombie will be killed by a Snow Pea only without ZombiFreeze . Ice Block Zombies are immune to Snow Pea's slowdown effect while on their ice blocks, so you may need Flaming Pea to deal with them. This should not deter you from using them, though, as they are very valuable to your arsenal.

Plants vs. Zombies

  • This is one of the three plants that have ice crystals (which replace its leaves and mushroom cap respectively) and freeze zombies that approach the player's house, the other two being the Ice-shroom and the Winter Melon; however, the Ice-shroom completely leaves all the zombies frozen in place.
    Imitater Snow Pea

    Imitater Snow Pea

  • Snow Peas are effectively the same as a Repeater, because they do the same amount of damage for the same length the zombie walks. However, the Snow Pea cannot be stacked on a single lane, as the freezing affects only the first zombie in the row, but has more synergy with other plants than a Repeater (though the Torchwood has even more synergy than a Snow Pea and destroys the Snow Pea's synergy).
  • If a peashooting ZomBotany Zombie is frozen, it will be slowed down, but it still fires peas at the same rate.
  • When the Snow Pea shoots a frozen pea, a small glittering sound is heard. In the DS and DSiWare version, the sound will be louder.
  • Snow Pea's sun cost in Versus Mode is 150, similar to Repeater and Cherry Bomb.
  • There's a glitch that might occur if a Pole Vaulting Zombie vaults over a Torchwood into a Snow Pea; the frozen peas shot by the Snow Pea while it is getting eaten will go through the Pole Vaulting Zombie into the Torchwood without freezing or damaging the Pole Vaulting Zombie.

Plants vs. Zombies Adventures

  • You can see that Snow Pea is breathing with its mouth.
  • It is one of the few plants with a confirmed gender, being male.

Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time

  • The Snow Pea now has five ice shards on its head instead of six like in Plants vs. Zombies.
  • It, along with the Iceberg Lettuce, are one of the two plants that appear in the trailer, but aren't seen fighting the zombies.
    • Both plants are seen in Crazy Dave's refrigerator.
  • It now costs 150 sun instead of 175 sun in the original Plants vs. Zombies.
  • The Snow Pea now has an effect when firing called, "breath fog", which looks similar to when you can see your breath on a cold day.
    • This is obviously because the peas are so cold, that you can see his breath after firing them.
  • After using Plant Food, the Snow Pea will shake its head, similar to someone shaking themselves awake.
  • In the 1.9 update, there is a texture glitch for Snow Pea's eyes along with the Wall-nut, Threepeater and Twin Sunflower.
  • Like Winter Melon, when Jester Zombie deflects its pea, the plant hit by that pea will not be chilled.
  • Snow Pea's costume in the Chinese version changes the Plant Food effect by shooting five giant ice balls that pierce through zombies.
  • In the Chinese version, if Snow Pea is level 2, it has a chance of shooting Ice Shards, and at level 3 it will only shoot Ice Shards.
  • It can only chill the Jester Zombie by its Plant Food Upgrade.
  • Snow Pea's stem is now blue like its head.
