Appease-mint is a Power Mint plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2. When planted, he launches a volley of huge peas that break into smaller peas upon contact with a zombie. He can also boost any Appease-mint Family plants on the lawn by increasing the effectiveness of their properties, such as damage.
Appease-mint Family plants include:
- Bowling Bulb
- Pea Pod
- Primal Peashooter
- Red Stinger
- Split Pea
Like other Power Mints, Appease-mint cannot be imitated or affected by other mints. He remains on the lawn for 6 seconds.
Appease-mint can be purchased from the Store with 100 mints while he is available.
He is based on the "Lamiaceae," also known as mint.
His name is a portmanteau of "appeasement," meaning "the action or process of appeasing," "pea (as seen by his description, appearance, and ability)," and "mint."

Appease-mint takes great umbrage at the notion that he might back down from a fight. "Yes, my name is 'Appease-mint,' but that has more to do with my affinity towards peas than any disinclination to stand up for my beliefs. Rescind your vile calumny this instant, lest I compose a blistering letter of outrage!"

- Bowling Bulb will do an additional 80/240/360 DPS with its small, medium, and large bulbs respectively. It'll also regrow its bulbs in reverse order.

*Appease-mint's Projectiles launch smaller projectiles when they hit a zombie for the first time.
Appease-mint is a good choice in peashooter-based strategies as his boosts can often clear out entire waves of zombies. In particular, Bowling Bulb is a good choice, since he will cause Bowling Bulb to prioritize recharging the orange bulb, while also boosting the damage he deals. Bowling Bulb also has relatively cheap splash damage with a quick recharge, so he is easy to amass. Threepeater is another viable alternative, as its boosted peas deal a good amount of damage.
However, Appease-mint has a lot of weaknesses. Do not use Appease-mint in Dark Ages as mushrooms mostly suit this no sun environment and Appease-mint's peas can be interrupted by Tombstones and deflected by Jester Zombie. In addition, Appease-mint shouldn't be used against Excavator Zombies as their shovels can block Appease-mint's shots and he can easily shovel up Appease-mint plants.
It is not recommended to bring Appease-mint to levels where you can't lose plants since he will disappear after a while.
Plants vs. Zombies Wiki has a gallery for Appease-mint.
