Pomegunate (机枪石榴; pinyin: jīqiāng shíliú) is a plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. He attacks zombies by spitting pomegranate seeds at them.



Pomegunate is based on the punica granatum, also known as the pomegranate. The second part is a reference to its Plant Food ability, which is similar to a machine gun, but his normal attack is more like a scattergun.


He is a uncommon monthly special plant. He spits multiple seeds at zombies in a 3x1 space in front of him. If you want to receive Puzzle Pieces for him, you can obtain some from your daily login reward.

Almanac entry

机枪石榴 (Pomegunate)
Sun cost: 325

RANGE: 1x4



    In English:

    Pomegunate fires the front range of zombies.

    Range Details: In front of it
    Plant feature: orange-red plant, weapon family, buck-toothed boy

    When Pomegunate went to the library to peek at the school beauty he accidentally read a book entitled "1000 Ways to Eat Pomegranates", on the title page was a quote that changed his life, "No matter how you eat it, pomegranate seeds are always spit out." Then he joined the army, and became a machine gunner with oddly bad marksmanship. And then he discharged, and became a landlord who ate seeds and sunbathed every day. And then? Don't you see that guy over there who opened his mouth to spit at you?


Plant Food effect

When fed Plant Food, Pomegunate pulls out a machine gun's barrel on top of his head and starts firing powerful seeds every second, dealing massive damage to whatever is in front of him in a 3x5 area.


He causes splash damage along with direct damage.

This plant is better used in groups because of the heavy damage output in multiple lanes. At level 1, you should keep this heavily defended with defensive plants such as Wall-nuts, Tall-nuts, and Infi-nut, to ensure that the Pomegunate does not get easily overwhelmed by the zombie horde due to his low range. Support him with Winter MelonLaser Bean or Snapdragon since he cannot stand alone.

From Level 2, treat this plant like how you would use Snapdragon. He can become very powerful at level 4 since his Plant Food effect is activated upon planting. Combining this with Sunflower Singer at this level can make him even more dangerous since he has received upgrades to his damage output.

Just be careful in Dark Ages and Kongfu World when you are entering levels with Jester Zombie and Hammer Zombie respectively since they can deflect the plant's projectiles back at him.
