Angel Starfruit (天使星星果; pinyin: tiānshǐ xīngxīng guǒ) is a plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. It was released for Children's Day event in May-June 2016. It is a ten-directional version of Starfruit, capable of launching five stars at once, but with the ability to sometimes change their direction by rotating its body.
Its costume (an angel wing with halo ring) references the fact it has "angel" in its name.
Note: Angel Starfruit's recharge is Fast in-game.

Plant Food effect
When fed with Plant Food, Angel Starfruit will shoot a large amount of stars while rotating.
When costumed, it shoots a mix of red and blue stars. Red stars dealt more damage, and blue stars functioned like ice projectiles, and slows zombies as well as extinguishes flames.
Its use is similiar to Starfruit, the difference is that it deals stronger damage and has a chance to change its directions. Plant multiple of them in different columns and rows will help the Angel Starfruits to reach their max potential of shooting in all possible directions at once.
The power of its Plant Food effect is well known (according to the Chinese PvZ2 community) and some players say that it is impossible for zombies to appear if Plant Food is given frequently. So it is recommended to plant it on Power Tiles or use Tile Turnips.
