Icy Currant (寒冰醋栗: pinyin: Hán bīng cù lì) is a plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2 introduced in the 2.2.4 update alongside Electric Peashooter and Hot Date. Like Electric Currant, two Icy Currants on the same lane or column will generate an ice wall that slows down zombies. He can attack zombies by creating an ice tile on his tile that slows zombies down to defend himself.
His name is a combination of the words "icy," referring his ability and appearance and "currant," the real-life plant he based on.

Plant Food upgrade
Gains an iceberg armor for around 5 seconds, which gives Icy Currant invulnerability for around 5 seconds, afterward, it will permanently gain bonus attack power, similar to its counterpart.
Icy Currant's iceberg armor will explode when it ends, dealing damage to zombies around him.
Use this plant as you would an Electric Currant. Pair him with Sweet Potato or Garlic to make sure all zombies go within range. Keep in mind that he does not have a ranged attack unless you have multiple in the same column or row.
However, Icy Current has a lot of weakness. The aforementioned short-range makes him impractical for damaging and slowing zombies. In addition, there are far better-slowing options, such as Snow Pea, Sap-fling or Cold Snapdragon.
- His description is a typical cold joke.
- It also mentions Snow Pea, as both are Ice–based plants.
- He is the fifth plant to be an ice variant of an already existing plant, with the other four being Snow Pea, Winter Melon, Cold Snapdragon, and Cryo-shroom
- Although he doesn't appear in the international version, a seed packet texture for him is present in the files.
