The Hazelnut line (榛果系; pinyin: zhēnguǒ xì) is a Class A PvZAS Icon GentleGentle plant line in Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars.

The line consists of Pistachio (开心果; pinyin: kāixīn guǒ), Hazelnut (榛果; pinyin: zhēnguǒ), and Hazelnut Ball (榛果球; pinyin: zhēnguǒ qiú). They all specialize in healing and removing negative effects from plants.

Pistachio and Hazelnut attack by firing laser beams, while Hazelnut Ball attacks by jumping off of its base and throwing multiple hazelnuts.


Each member of the Hazelnut line is based on a nut of some sort.

Pistachio PNG42
Pistachio, as the name entails, is based on the pistachio, a member of the Anacardiaceae family whose seed is commonly consumed as food.

Both Hazelnut and Hazelnut Ball are named after the hazelnut, a member of the Corylus family commonly used in confectioneries, namely chocolates and chocolate truffles.

However, despite being named "Hazelnut", Hazelnut bares more resemblance to an acorn than a hazelnut, and Hazelnut Ball also appears to more closely resemble a Pinecone.

Hazelnut Ball


  • Hazelnut line used to have two attributes, mechanics of which were removed from the game.
    • Hazelnut line's element was earth.
    • Hazelnut line's feature was purple.
  • Presumably, Hazelnut line used to have different active ability, which healed all plants for three turns.
  • A plant similar to Pistachio can be seen in Mixed Nuts. Interestingly enough, that pistache resembles Pistachio more, than a pistache from Plants vs. Zombies Heroes.
  • Hazelnut has the same design as Tornacorn, a plant from the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. The only visual difference is that Tornacorn has a wind-up key above its cupule, instead of a stem.
  • Hazelnut Ball's Chinese name is the same as the Chinese name for the Pokémon "Pineco".
  • Hazelnut Ball's costume glasses resemble the famous Television SMPTE color bars.
