The Snow Pea is a pea shooting plant with slowing ability. Its frozen pea can slow down most zombies. 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), 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 freezing every zombie on the lane, becomes a Ice Queen Pea, and shoots like a Gatling Pea, when it leaves it to 3.5 seconds, it becomes normal again and there will be no icy trail on the lane before the attack.

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. Slowed zombies move and eat about half as fast as regular zombies of their type. It can also slow 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.


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, not providing additional slowing effects, so unless you're getting them for free, there's probably no need to plant more than one per lane as they are useless and 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 recommended. 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 can't 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

  • 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.

  • 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

  • Now the Snow Pea 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.
  • When firing, there's a new effect of "breath fog" added into the Snow Pea, pretty much when one breathes during winter.
  • After using Plant Food, the Snow Pea will shake its head, similar to someone shaking themself awake.
  • In 1.9 there's a texure glitch for Snow Pea's eyes along with Wall-nut, Threepeater and Twin Sunflower
