Card description

Perfect for your winter picnics.



Despite its low stats, this plant is very powerful if used correctly, due to its Splash Damage trait and the ability to PvZH Frozen IconFreeze 3 zombies at most every time it attacks. It synergizes very well with Snowdrop, as it gains up to +6StrengthPvZH/+6HeartPvZH per Winter Melon's attack. It 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 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. Citron can use Root Wall or Peel Shield on Winter Melon to make it invincible for one turn, with the exception of instant-kill cards.


Despite its low stats, Winter Melon is a very big threat. Not only is its ability powerful 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, but you should decrease its strength to 2 or less first via Shrink Ray, Landscaper, Nibble, or Pied Piper. Locust Swarm can destroy it 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 whatever you do, try 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. 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 it. However, only Super Brainz can normally pull this off, so other heroes should use the aforementioned tricks to destroy it.

  • It, Cabbage-Pult, Melon-Pult and Blooming Heart are the only lobbed-shot plants to return as cards in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes.
    • Coincidentally, they are all from previous installments.
