Card description

Perfect for your winter picnics.


It is based on the plant from Plants vs. Zombies with the same name.



Despite its low stats, this plant is a very powerful plant if used correctly, due to its Splash Damage trait and the ability to PvZH Frozen IconFreeze 3 zombies at maximum. It synergizes very well with Snowdrop, as it gains +6HeartPvZH/+6StrengthPvZH per Winter Melon's attack at maximum. It also synergizes amazingly with Winter Squash, as Winter Squash spells doom for all 3 frozen zombies. Otherwise, think of this plant as a stronger version 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 7th turn, and is most likely going to be destroyed itself. To prevent that, you can make it 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.


Despite its low stats, Winter Melon is a very big threat. Not only does it PvZH Frozen IconFreeze a whole lot of zombies why is annoying by itself, it can be even more dangerous with Snowdrop or Winter Squash accompanying it, 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 it. First of all, it is naturally vulnerable to Rocket Science and Slammin' Smackdown. You can also play Rolling Stone or Weed Spray too, but you should decrease its strength to 2 or less first via Shrink Ray, Landscaper, or 2 Nibbles. Locust Swarm can destroy this regardless of stats, but it is more expensive than the aforementioned cards.

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 to destroy it in one attack. If you make the zombie do a bonus attack, it is basically the same as destroying it with a trick, as Winter Melon isn't going to be able to fight back. However, Winter Melon itself could do a bonus attack before the zombie, so keep that in mind.




  • It is the only returning plant from the Plants vs. Zombies main series that is a legendary plant card.
    • Technically, Wall-Nut Bowling is also a returning plant, but is more of a mini-game than an actual plant.
  • It and Cabbage-Pult are the only lobbed-shot plants to return as cards in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes.
  • Despite winter melons being botanically berries, it is not classified as a berry plant.
