Saucer Squash (飞碟瓜; pinyin: fēidié guā) is the fifth plant obtained in Sky City in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. Similar to Stunion, it stuns zombies for around 10 seconds and then flies away. If the Saucer Squash is level 2, it can capture low health zombies while it captures higher health zombies if it is level 3.
Although referred as a zucchini in-game, Saucer Squash is more similar to Cucurbita pepo, better known as pumpkin. Its body is based on a flying saucers, also known as flying disc. It is a term for a supposed type of described flying craft with a disc or saucer-shaped body, commonly used generically to refer to any anomalous flying object. Its eyes resemble alien's eyes in general descriptions.

Just like Stunion, Saucer Squash is a good plant to stall zombies. Because Stunion is not an airborne plant, the player should use Saucer Squash if the player is playing Sky City, as they have the same sun cost. In other areas however, Stunion should be used due to its recharging speed.
However, a level 2 or 3 Saucer Squash with the capture ability usually means it is more worthwhile to bring it along over Stunion.
