Winter Squash is a premium rare plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Smarty IconSmarty class. It costs 4SunPvZH to play, and has 2StrengthPvZH/6HeartPvZH. It does not have any traits, and its ability instantly destroys a zombie that receives the PvZH Frozen IconFreeze effect. This ability persists until all Winter Squashes are removed from the field.

Origins

It is based on the plant in real life with the same name.

Its appearance is based on the plant from Plants vs. Zombies with a similar appearance, and also a pun on "winter," referring to its ice blue color, icicles, earmuffs, and shivering motions, which are commonly associated with winter.

Strategies

With

Winter Squash is a very useful plant, most of it due to its useful ability. It is one of the key plants in a PvZH Frozen IconFreeze deck, as it instantly destroys any zombie regardless of stats, as long as it gets frozen. This allows you to easily deal with any threat, as even one Iceberg Lettuce spells doom to a powerful threat. Winter Melon is another example of such a card, as Winter Melon's Splash Damage trait allows it to freeze up to 3 zombies per attack, instantly destroying all of them.

Even if you only consider its stats, it is still a good plant. It has 6 health, which lets it survive a hit or two from most zombies. This allows it to destroy many zombies, as well as fighting back itself, before going down for a few turns. However, without any freezing cards, it is much less useful, so remember to include them in your deck if you decide to use this. As Green Shadow, you can use boosting tricks to avoid getting destroyed by Rolling Stone, but beware of Rocket Science, though.

Against

Combined with its high health and its ability, Winter Squash is annoying and dangerous at the same time. It can wreck a lot of havoc upon your zombies, especially if your opponent is running a PvZH Frozen IconFreeze deck. However, it is not invincible and has quite a lot of counters. Playing PvZH Deadly IconDeadly zombies is one of them, as they instantly destroy Winter Squash in one attack. Since it has 2 strength, Rolling Stone and Weed Spray are good choices against it, and as a last resort, you can play Locust Swarm to instantly destroy it.
