He costs 2 sun and, like in previous games, he attacks the first zombie that approaches and deals heavy damage to it, as well as damaging other zombies on its tile.

Prior to the 2021 re-release of Plants vs. Zombies 3, Squash was a Rare Trap plant obtained by the player after beating Floor 8 of Devour Tower. His seed packets were more likely to be dropped in Dave's Workshop breakout levels.
He costed 4 sun and he attacks the first zombie the approaches and deals heavy damage to it, and other zombies on its tile. It then disappears unless upgraded with a taco.
Despite the heavy amount of damage he dealt, he was ineffective at defeating Armored Zombies, as Squash would not be able to deal any damage to them directly, so long as they had armor to absorb all the damage.
Squash's Plant Food ability was named Spring Training, and allowed Squash will deal an immense amount of damage to any zombie in a 3x3 area in front of him. This was the only time Squash could deal damage to Armored Zombies directly when they still had their armor.
Squash's Tacobility was named Gourdgeous and allowed Squash to remain on the lawn after attacking, which means he could attack more than once. Squash also dealt more damage to zombies he attacked.
Note: The stats shown below only apply to level 1.
