Snap Pea is a premium plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2 that was introduced in the 7.1.3 update. It instantly kills a zombie in front of it when planted, then chews for twenty seconds before it spits out the zombie's head, dealing 400 damage per shot to any zombie. It will then rest for ten seconds before killing another zombie. If it can't eat a zombie, such as machines or Gargantuars, it will shoot three peas at the zombie.
Snap Pea requires 250 seed packets to be unlocked. The player can do so by replaying Jurassic Marsh levels to earn Piñatas from the piñata tracker.
Its appearance resembles a mix between a Peashooter and a Chomper, with the Chomper head being based on a pea pod. Its name is based on the snap pea, a cultivar group of edible potted peas and is a reference to how it "snaps" (eats) up zombies with its huge mouth after burrowing.
Note: The stats shown below only apply to Level 1.
SUN COST: 200
SPECIAL: Chew Speed
Snap Peas dive underground, burrow towards zombies, then pop up underneath to swallow them in one gulp. Snap Peas then return to their starting spot, chew on the entire matter for a while, and finally spit the zombies' heads out at attackers.
"I'm a picky eater, I'll admit it," admits Snap Pea casually. "I'll eat a zombie, no problem, but there's just something about heads. I feel like they're looking at me."
Plant Food effect
When fed Plant Food, Snap Pea will burrow underground and snap up five random zombies, and then return to shoot all five heads in its lane, with each head dealing incredibly high damage. If its only targets are machines or Gargantuars, it will shoot three peas at them instead.
When boosted by Enforce-mint, Snap Pea will have an additional 75 dps added onto the peas it shoots at zombies it can't bite (105 per pea), its chew time will be reduced to ten seconds per zombie, and 1500 dps will be added to its zombie head attack, for a total of 1900 dps.

*If Snap Pea cannot eat the zombie, it will instead shoot 3 peas at the zombie.
Using this plant can be a good counter against zombies that have some sort of countermeasure against certain plants, such as the Excavator Zombie immune to straight shots, Parasol Zombie which is immune to lobbed shots, and Imp Dragon which is immune to fire attacks. This plant will eliminate those threats in a matter of seconds; thereby allowing your other plants to have an easier time killing more aggressive zombies when they're at lower levels.
Plants vs. Zombies Wiki has a gallery for Snap Pea.
- If it eats a shrunken zombie, the head will appear to be shrunk when shot out.
- It can eat a zombie that is trapped in a frozen block.
- It will not go after zombies that are in the water in Big Wave Beach or on plankless lanes in Pirate Seas; furthermore, since it's an underground plant, it cannot be planted on Lily Pads or on planks.
- It also cannot go after airborne zombies.
- If there's nothing to hit on its lane, it will continue chewing the head until it sees something to hit rather than throwing it at nothing.
- When it's targeting a zombie to eat, both the plant and the zombie become immune to damage and untargetable (the plant projectiles will pass through the zombie, and the zombies will ignore the plant while it's underground).
