Sweet Pea was a VIP in Plants vs. Zombies Adventures. It was unique from other VIP plants in the fact that the player had to unlock it by asking five friends to help them. He or she could also pay 300 gems to obtain it instead.
Its name is a reference to the Sweet Pea, a flowering plant in the genus Lathyrus in the family Fabaceae that is native to Sicily, southern Italy and Aegean Islands. Its appearance resembles a piece of mint candy wrapped in plastic. It also shoots a piece of mint candy.

“I always cry at germinations,” says Sweet Pea, an unabashed romantic--sentimental but never saccharine, and always low-calorie. But watch out: Sweet Pea is a lover AND a fighter.
Sweet Pea is a great plant to always use after it is unlocked. Being free to plant in Road Trip levels and the only VIP which can be grown without spending gems, it makes it a good substitute of Peashooter early on, as well as a good emergency plant later on. However, the damage and range are not that much better than Peashooter, but it is still slightly stronger, but it will have trouble defeating Conehead Zombies without help.
While Sweet Pea cannot defeat Conehead Zombies reliably, it still can kill basic zombies reliably, giving it some use after Sweaty Palms onward, and if no other VIPs are unlocked, it is always safe to use this plant in case of emergencies. In fact, it has some use even in The Sand Dooms or other levels without regular Zombies. They take up the VIP slot, and can at the very least be front-line cannon fodder. In Zombitorium Manor, it can come in handy to deal with any Imps thrown by a Gargantuar Zombie. It would take six seconds to kill an Imp by itself.
- It was one of the two VIPs based on Peashooter, the other being Beeshooter.
- Despite being a peashooting plant, it did not fire peas.
- The "leaf" on its head is part of a candy wrapper.
- This and Chilly Pepper are the only Plants vs. Zombies Adventures plants to return in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes.
