Planet of the Grapes is a galactic uncommon plant environment card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the PvZH Smarty IconSmarty class. It costs 3SunPvZH to play, and its ability draws a card every time a plant in it hurts the zombie hero.

Origins

Its name is a portmanteau of "Planet of the Apes," a science fiction movie franchise about a world in which humans and intelligent apes clash for control; and "grapes," referring to the grapes seen in the environment.  

The grapes seen in it are those from Sour Grapes (before update 1.6.27) and Grapes of Wrath (after update 1.6.27).  

The destroyed "Statue of Liberty" berry seen in the card is a reference to the movie's famous twist, where the sight of a destroyed Statue of Liberty makes the protagonist realize they have been on Earth all along.

Strategies

With

This environment is a simple way for Smarty heroes to draw more cards as the only other cards in the Smarty class that can draw cards are Magic Beanstalk and Grave Mistake.

As this is an environment, having two plants on this using the Team-Up trait can double the ability's effectiveness, allowing it to draw two cards on each combined strike rather than one.

However, this ability only activates if plants here hurt the zombie hero, so your opponent can simply play a zombie to shut its ability down. Fortunately, there are plants that can get past this, including those whose abilities hit your opponent directly such as Admiral Navy Bean, Sportacus, and Astro-Shroom, those with the PvZH Strikethrough IconStrikethrough trait, and those who attack on multiple (empty) lanes including Threepeater, Shooting Starfruit, Rotobaga, and Tricorn.

Each hero has their way of using this environment well:

  • Nightcap can play Astro-Shroom on this environment and draw a card every time a plant is played. This allows him to swarm cheap plants and do unblockable damage while easily maintaining the number of cards on his hand. While Planet of the Grapes is typically included in a deck along with Astro-Shroom to pull this combo off, he can also Conjure Planet of the Grapes from High-Voltage Currant.
  • Rose can use PvZH Strikethrough IconStrikethrough plants to ensure a card every time they attack without having their attack blocked. She can also play Heartichoke to potentially draw a card every time she heals herself or one of her plants. Additionally, if Aloesaurus is also on the field, Heartichoke, Planet of the Grapes, and it can activate each other's ability, resulting in a cycle of healing, damaging, and drawing which loops until Rose is fully healed, has 10 cards in her hand, or her opponent blocks Heartichoke's attack.
  • Citron and Beta-Carrotina can use Mirror-Nut to draw cards should your opponent damage any of their nut plants. They can also use plants with PvZH Truestrike IconBullseye to ensure that they do unblockable damage to their opponent to guarantee a card.
  • Green Shadow has access to bonus attacks such as Re-Peat Moss, the DoubleStrikeAltDouble Strike trait, Plant Food, and Espresso Fiesta, which helps against zombies that clog up this environment. Particularly, Bananasaurus Rex synergizes with this environment well becasue if any of her two attacks hit her opponent, she will grow stronger due to the card drawn. Aside from bonus attacks, Green Shadow also has access to the most beans, allowing her to activate Admiral Navy Bean's ability more easily if it is played on Planet of the Grapes.

However, PvZH Beastly IconBeastly heroes may have Squirrel Herders to destroy this environment. Grave Mistake can counter her easily, so it may be good to pack a few in your deck.

Against

Even though this environment doesn't seem like a threat, you still have to be careful with plants that can do direct damage like Admiral Navy Bean as it can allow your opponent to draw more cards easily. If you can, try to destroy plants in that environment to prevent them from drawing more cards. If there are plants that have no synergy in that environment, you can block them with any zombie as this environment only works if a plant hurts you. If these situations do not work, resort to replacing it with one of your environments. Alternatively, you can play Planetary Gladiator to redirect all damage dealt by you to him, negating the card draw as a result.

If you are playing as a Beastly hero, you can play Squirrel Herder to destroy this environment.

Trivia

  • Its card description makes a pun, with the word "great" replaced by the word "grape."
  • The card's icon and environment lane show grapes from Grapes of Wrath and Sour Grapes being the inhabitants of the huts.
    • However, neither of these two cards are from the Smarty class, but rather in the PvZH Kabloom IconKabloom class.
    • The Sour Grapes also uses its beta face.
    • Some of the Sour Grapes in the lane appear to be smiling.
      • The other grapes smile with them when the environment's ability is activated.
  • When this environment is replaced or removed, the player can see the grapes scattering from the lane.
  • Sometimes, the spear images will stay still even if this environment's ability activation has finished. This might be a glitch.
