Sour. Bitter. Resentful. It's all true. But he's got his reasons.

Sour Grapes is a basic common plant card introduced in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Kabloom IconKabloom plants. It costs 4SunPvZH to play, and has 2StrengthPvZH/2HeartPvZH when first played. When played, it will deal 1 damage to every zombie on the field.


It is based on the Grape, a fruiting berry of the deciduous woody vines of the botanical genus Vitis. Its name is either based on the term "sour grapes," used to refer to an attitude in which someone adopts a negative attitude to something because they can't have it themselves, or the 1998 comedy movie Sour Grapes.

Card description

Sour. Bitter. Resentful. It's all true. But he's got his reasons.

Update history

Update 1.6.27

  • Design change: its face is changed to make it look angry, possibly to fit it name and description better.



Sour Grapes can be used to finish off damaged zombies or to weaken out all of the zombies on the field. It is also surprisingly effective against zombie heroes from the Crazy class, such as Impfinity or Electric Boogaloo. This is because many Crazy zombies have 1 health point, allowing Sour Grapes to easily wipe them out. It is also useful when combined with Sergeant Strongberry, doing 3 damage to every zombie on the field to take out zombies with higher health.


Sour Grapes should not be too difficult to take out since it has 2StrengthPvZH/2HeartPvZH. Most zombie fighters should be able to take Sour Grapes out. A simple Bungee Plumber or Rolling Stone can take this out too.

However, the player should worry the most about its effect when played, especially when the player is playing as a Crazy zombie hero. The best counters for this plant are the Armored zombies, as they can withstand Sour Grapes' effect without taking any damage. To protect zombies without Armored, the player can use buffing cards like Yeti Lunchbox or Camel Crossing. It is not recommended to bounce Sour Grapes as this will allow the opponent to play it again, replaying its effect.




  • This plant's appearance and special ability may be inspired by the Plants vs. Zombies 2 plant Grapeshot.
  • Sour Grapes is one of the three plants based on grapes, the other two being Grapes of Wrath and Grapeshot.
  • The words "sour", "bitter", and "resentful" mentioned in its description are references to jealousy, which is referencing what this plant's name is based on.
  • If it is spawned by Seedling, the grapes it fires when played will be glowing strikes instead.
  • in the old update grapeshot used to do 2 damage to each zombie, but now it has been changed to 1 damage, because it was quite over powered.
