It is based on the pit of an avocado (Persea americana), a member of the flowering plant family Lauraceae.

Its name is a portmanteau of "Astrocado," the plant fighter it originates from, and "avocado pit," the real-life seed it is based on.

Its description includes "the pits," which is a term used to describe the worst possible situation. It is also a reference to avocados having pits.

While this plant is very cheap, it is also incredibly vulnerable as it only has 1HeartPvZH.png. And since it also transforms into a powerful plant, your opponent will likely prioritize on destroying it. If you manage to keep it alive, however, you regain your Astrocado for a cheap price. This often causes a battle between you and your opponent to try to stop one another from keeping/destroying Astrocado Pit.

While the easiest way to protect it is play it on an empty lane, Astrocado Pit will still be vulnerable to zombie tricks such as Rolling Stone, Nibble, and Bungee Plumber. However, this can be remedied by boosting its stats or limiting trick usage by playing certain cards. Do not use boosting tricks, however, as their bonuses do not cary over after the transformation.

Each plant hero has their own ways to protect this plant:

  • Wall-Knight can protect it by using tough Team-Up plants such as Wall-Nut, boosting his health using Steel Magnolia, or by playing Astrocado Pit in Force Field, rendering it invincible. However, his opponent can still use stat-lowering cards such as Nibble or instant-kill cards such as Locust Swarm, rendering Force Field and Team-Up plants useless. Additionally, they can override the environment with one of their own.
  • Chompzilla can boost it with Fertilize or Grow-Shroom, giving it not only a health boost but also a strength boost to retaliate against any suspecting zombie, but a better idea would be to play it in The Red Plant-It as the environment can continue to boost the astrocado it transforms into. She can also use Umbrella Leaf to grant it (and by extension the Astrocado it transforms into) immunity to tricks
  • Rose can PvZH Frozen Icon.pngFreeze or Bounce zombies that threaten Astrocado Pit, helping it to survive the turn. She can also play Brainana to protect it from zombie tricks. Although she needs to make at least 7 sun, generating extra sun is not a problem for all solar heroes with due to sun-producing cards like Sunflower.
  • Solar Flare can play Berry Blast or Sizzle to destroy zombies that threaten this plant. In addition, she can play it in Pair Pearadise, creating a copy of it, in most cases ensuring that at least one will survive even if the other is destroyed. So as long as both Astrocado Pits are not destroyed, you will find yourself with two Astrocados next turn since the environment will duplicate Astrocado when Astrocado Pit transforms.


Astrocado Pit is a relatively easy plant to destroy, as its low health gives it a variety of counters against it. Having a zombie in every lane ensures that this plant will not be able to transform unless it is protected with Team-Up plants, or if your opponent has instant-kill cards such as Squash. Because of this, the most secure way to get rid of this plant is by using tricks or environments. However, if Astrocado Pit is played in the late game in a situation where you don't have many cards left in your hand, it can start to become a threat.

You should have instant-kill cards such as Locust Swarm to ensure that even if your opponent finds a way to keep this plant alive and allow it to transform, the Astrocado will just be removed instantly. Although this continues the cycle once more and may exhaust your cards, it allows you more time to deal with it, possibly allowing you to destroy Astrocado Pit itself and stop the cycle or defeat your opponent.
