Tall-nut is a defensive plant appearing in both of the main series Plants vs. Zombies games. It costs 125 sun and has an identical recharge time, but double the health of a standard Wall-nut. Additionally, Tall-nut can also block several flying enemies from passing through, forcing them to eat it instead.

Origins

Tall-nut is based on the edible walnut seed, specifically the Juglans regia. Its name is a cross between "Wall-nut" and "tall", referring to Tall-nut's incredible height helping the plant blocking flying enemies.

History

Plants vs. Zombies

Tall-nut is unlocked after completing Level 3-8. Tall-nut can block the following enemies:

Tall-nuts can withstand 144 bites, and its appearance changes at 48 bites and 96 bites, before finally being eaten at 144 bites. Winning Pogo Party without using Tall-nuts and Magnet-shrooms will give the player the Sproing! Sproing! achievement.

In Beghouled and Beghouled Twist, the Tall-nut acts as Wall-nut's upgrade. The player needs to spend 250 sun to upgrade the Wall-nuts.

Plants vs. Zombies 2

Tall-nut is acquired by completing Wild West - Day 18 in the international version, or through purchase for 200,000 coins in the Chinese version. It can prevent the following enemies from bypassing defense:

Tall-nuts can withstand 160 bites and its appearance changes at 53 bites and 107 bites before being eaten at 160 bites. Using Plant Food on five Tall-nuts in a single level will give the player the High Five achievement. Tall-nut is also an upgrade for Wall-nut for 1000 sun in Beghouled, along with Endurian.

Strategies

Tall-nut shares the role with Wall-nut as a buffer layer between other offensive plants and the incoming horde. Compared to its cousin, Tall-nut will generally have more trouble getting deployed in the early game due to increased cost, but makes up for it with superior performance in the later level thanks to the greatly increased durability. Tall-nut's usefulness in the field is also due to the plant's special ability to block flying zombies and prevent them from creating chaos in the player's defense line.

Tall-nut can greatly boost the effectiveness of plants with limited attack range such as Spikeweed and Bonk Choy by holding the zombies in place for them to attack. Being a defensive plant, Tall-nut can also be instantly replaced with Wall-nut First Aid as long as there is visual degradation. Imitater can remedy Tall-nut's long recharge time issue - even then however, Tall-nut should never be relied on in Survival: Endless and the Endless Zones, as the massive amount of zombies can easily overwhelm the plant.

Plants vs. Zombies

Tall-nut is a good choice for Pogo Party, as it can block the incoming Pogo Zombies and render them much less of a threat to the player's defense. This will prevent the player from earning the achievement Sproing! Sproing! however.

Planting Tall-nut on Lily Pad is a simple way to block Dolphin Rider Zombie and make him lose his dolphin. However, the player should bare in mind that never plant Tall-nut on the rightmost column. The Dolphin Rider Zombie can jump over it for unknown reason.

Plants vs. Zombies 2

While the sequel has slightly buffed Tall-nut's health, the situation itself has became worse for the plant for a variety of reasons: The greatly increased amount of enemies that can instantly destroy plants has reduced the viability of defensive plants, while Blover's ability being improved means that flying enemies will be much less of a threat to the player in general. Additionally, Tall-nut faces direct competition in utility with Infi-nut, whose force field can also block flying zombies as well as countering various other zombies' abilities.

Because of its ability, Tall-nut is useful for blocking flying enemies as mentioned above. Tall-nut is also a decent choice for Save Our Seeds levels and blocking zombies from trampling flowers.
