  • Sun cost change: 7SunPvZH → 6SunPvZH

Strategies

With

Despite his low stats, this plant is very powerful if used correctly, due to his Splash Damage trait and the ability to PvZH Frozen IconFreeze 3 zombies at most every time he attacks. He synergizes very well with Snowdrop, as she gains up to +6StrengthPvZH/+6HeartPvZH per Winter Melon's attack. He also becomes devastating with Winter Squash in play, as this combo will wipe out many zombies at once. Otherwise, think of this plant as a stronger version of Snow Pea that cannot be used with Torchwood or The Podfather.

However, Winter Melon does not have enough strength to destroy most zombies that can be played on the 6th turn, and is most likely going to be destroyed himself. To prevent that, you can make him do a bonus attack when you see a powerful threat or a PvZH Deadly IconDeadly zombie, freezing them over and over again until they get destroyed, or get thawed out from a bonus attack. Citron can use Root Wall or Peel Shield on Winter Melon to make him invincible for one turn, with the exception of instant-kill cards. But for most, Winter Melon does have decent enough health to survive.

Against

Winter Melon can be a big threat if you are playing zombies close to each other and with freezing decks. Not only is his ability powerful by itself, he can be even more dangerous with Snowdrop or Winter Squash accompanying him, tipping the scales to your opponent's favor greatly.

Therefore, it is unwise to play zombies where Winter Melon can hit them. Instead, try to destroy Winter Melon by playing tricks and using abilities, as there are many ways to destroy him. First of all, he is naturally vulnerable to Rocket Science and Slammin' Smackdown. You can also play Rolling Stone or Weed Spray, but you should decrease his strength to two or less first via Shrink Ray, Landscaper, Nibble, or Pied Piper. Locust Swarm can destroy him regardless of stats.

If you have no choice but to play a zombie to destroy Winter Melon, it is best not to play any other zombies in adjacent lanes to Winter Melon, and whatever you do, try to destroy him in one attack. If you make the zombie do a bonus attack, it is basically the same as destroying him with a trick, as Winter Melon isn't going to be able to fight back. However, Winter Melon himself could do a bonus attack before the zombie, so keep that in mind. A good option is to use Smelly Zombie against Winter Melon, followed by a Lurch for Lunch, as he is in a gravestone, so there is minimal stress on destroying him. However, only Super Brainz and Huge-Gigantacus can normally pull this off, so other heroes should use the aforementioned tricks to destroy him.

Trivia

  • Him and Shooting Starfruit are the only returning plants from the Plants vs. Zombies main series that are legendary plant cards.
    • Technically, Wall-Nut Bowling is also a returning plant, but it is based off of a mini-game rather than a plant.
  • Him, Cabbage-Pult, Melon-Pult and Blooming Heart are the only lobbed-shot plants to return as cards in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes.
  • Before update 1.16.10, he used to have the highest Splash Damage stat in the game, with Splash Damage 4.
