Left abilities
Potato MineGW1.png
Potato Mine
Potato Mines force Zombies to look down. If a Zombie sets foot on a Potato Mine, it will explode and they will experience the full force of a "SPUDOW!"
Potato Nugget MineGW1.png
Potato Nugget Mine
These little nuggets are small, have a great sense of humor and enjoy sitting around waiting to blow Zombies sky high. While not as damaging as their potato cousins, these little nuggets still pack a spudow!
Center abilities
Garlic DroneGW1.png
Garlic Drone
By launching her Garlic Drone companion, she can monitor Zombies from the skies, attack them from the air, and call in devastating Corn Strikes.
Artichoke DroneGW1.png
Artichoke Drone
The Artichoke Drone has a really thick skin. This gives it more health and helps it last longer in a fight. However, it does not have the same firepower as its Garlic counterpart.
Right abilities
Tallnut BattlementGW1.png
Tallnut Battlement
Tallnut Battlements have many uses. They can be shields and they can block paths to stop the Zombies in their tracks. They're terrible card players, though.
Iron MaidenGW1.png
Iron Maiden
Encased in iron armor, these Iron Maiden Tallnuts will stare at Zombies with an unmatched intensity. They are very hard to destroy and enjoy getting in the way.


Consider Citrus Cactus to be a Sun Pharaoh with much longer range. Her weapon fires three consecutive shots in a burst, which can deal a lot of damage if they all hit critically. Combine this with the abilities of the Cactus class, and you have a ranged powerhouse who can lock down points on the map as she pleases, along with the firepower to stay there.

  • She is the third Cactus that does not shoot needles, the first one being Future Cactus, and the second being Petrified Cactus.
  • Once the player unlocks her, they will get all the upgrades without having to get them. The same happens with Berry Shooter, Plasma Pea, Chester Chomper, and Dr. Chester.
  • She and Berry Shooter are the only plants in the game that shoot fruit rather than peas or needles. Berry Shooter shoots clusters of berries while this plant shoots orange wedges.
  • She is one of the four characters to be sponsored by a product, with the others being Berry Shooter, Chester Chomper, and Dr. Chester.
    • In this case, she is sponsored by Aquafina FlavorSplash flavored drinks.
  • In her old description, it said that the Citrus Cactus was male.
    • In an unknown update, the description was changed to refer to the Citrus Cactus being a female, most likely to have this remain consistent with the main class' gender, respectively.
  • She was the only Cactus variant to have a 3-burst weapon.
  • Along with Berry Shooter, Chester Chomper and Dr. Chester, she did not return in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 because she was a promotional character.
    • Despite her absence in Garden Warfare 2 due to her being a promotional character, her weapon, the Orange Burst, is still in the game's files.
