Squash is a Rare Trap plant introduced in Plants vs. Zombies 3. It jumps on the first zombie in front of it, dealing heavy damage to it and all other zombies on its tile.


For more information about this character, see Squash.

Squash is the first Trap plant obtained by the player being unlocked after beating Floor 8 of Devour Tower.

He costs 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 deals, he is ineffective at defeating Armored Zombies, as Squash will not be able to deal any damage to them directly, so long as they have their armor to absorb all the damage.



Squash is based on the plant with the same name from the original Plants vs. Zombies, though his appearance is more influenced by his Plants vs. Zombies 2 design.

Its Tacobility is a pun on "gorgeous" and "gourd."

The best gift Squash ever got was a clock that had the word "Squash" instead of numbers, so it was always Squash O'Clock. It broke (he squashed it), but it's still right twice a day.


Plant Food effect

Squash's Plant Food ability is named Spring Training, in which Squash will deal an immense amount of damage to any zombie in a 3x3 area in front of him. This is the only time Squash can deal damage to Armored Zombies directly when they still have their armor.


Squash's Tacobility is named Gourdgeous. Which allows Squash to remain on the lawn after attacking, allowing him to attack another time. Squash also deals more damage to zombies he attacks.
