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

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

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

Origins

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

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

Both Hazelnut and Hazelnut Ball were 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.


Strategies

Can be used in the center tile's to purify the negative effects, and help some plants.
