—Tall-nut in Plants vs. Zombies
- For other uses, see Tall-nut (disambiguation).
He has more health than Wall-nut and can stop low flying zombies in their tracks, an ability Wall-nut doesn't have.
As of Plants vs. Zombies 3, Tall-nut has appeared in five games.
Tall-nut is based on the edible walnut seed, specifically the Juglans regia.
His name is a cross between "Wall-nut" and "tall", referring to Tall-nut's incredible height helping the plant blocking flying enemies and the fact that he is a nut.

In the original Plants vs. Zombies game, as well as all Chinese spin-off games based on it, Tall-nut is unlocked after beating Level 3-8, being the last Pool plant to be unlocked. He costs 125 sun and can serve as a sort of upgrade to Wall-nut, costing 75 more sun but having twice the health and is unable to be bounced over by leaping zombies.
In both Beghouled mini-games, Wall-nut can be upgraded into Tall-nut for 250 sun, the cheapest upgrade in the game and if neither him or Magnet-shroom is used to clear Pogo Party, the player will obtain the Sproing! Sproing! Achievement.
There is a Zombotany zombie based off Tall-nut that only appears in Zombotany 2, the Tall-nut Zombie. Being based off Tall-nut's high health, they absorb 2,4000 DPS before being defeated, making them the 4th strongest non boss zombie in terms of health in the game (only being Gargantuar, Giga-Football Zombie, and Giga-gargantuar).

Tall-nut makes an appearance in the Chinese spin-off Plants vs. Zombies Social Edition, but along with this, there was a premium plant based off Tall-nut, Vine-nut.

Tall-nut next appears in Plants vs. Zombies 2, being unlocked after beating the 18th day of the Wild West. Like in the Plants vs. Zombies, he costs 125 sun, has double the health of Wall-nut and blocks off flying zombies.
Once again, during Beghouled mini-games, he can be upgraded from Wall-nut, this time costing 1,000 sun to upgrade. He is also a member of the Reinforce-mint family, temporarily gaining 32,000 health and instantly activates his Plant Food ability, which covers himself in iron armor granting another 12,000 health (or being able to withstand a single Gargantuar attack).
- Main article: Tallnut Battlement
Tall-nuts make an appearance in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 as an ability for the Cactus, the Tallnut Battlement. When used, Cactus will place a battlement made of two Tall-nuts and two Wall-nuts attached together by vines to block off damage. This ability doesn't fully protect Cactus, only the bottom side, but allows Cactus to still be able to attack from that area.
They take 200 damage before being destroyed and take 30 seconds to recharge each. Only 4 can be placed and stored at a time. They have two alternate ability forms, Iron Maiden, which absorbs 500 damage but only one can be stored at a time, and Bling Maiden, the exact same as Iron Maiden but covered in gold armor. A statue in the Backyard Battleground, "Party Animals", appears to based off the Tallnut Battlement's design.
- Main article: Nut line
Tall-nut's latest physical appearance was in the Chinese-exclusive turn-based game Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars as the second plant in the Nut line, evolving from Wall-nut and into Holographic Tall-nut. They were melee attackers who ram themselves into the first enemy ahead of them, but served a more defensive purpose, meant to protect other plants from damage.
Their active ability was Armored Assault, which removed negative effects from themselves and creates a protective shield for the team that lasted 5 turns, while their passive ability was Meditation, which regenerated more health every turn.
While not appearing as a playable plant card himself, Tall-nut does make a cameo appearance in the background of Grass Knuckles' map.
Another Tall-nut also appears as a part of the card Go-Nuts, a 3 cost Smarty card in the Flower and Nut tribes, with 2/2, the Team-Up trait and the ability to give all Team-Up plants +1 whenever another Team-Up card is played.
Plants vs. Zombies Wiki has a gallery for Tall-nut.
- Despite making no appearance in the game itself, Tall-nut makes an appearance in a promotional image for the now defunct Facebook exclusive 3D tower-defense game Plants vs. Zombies Adventures where two of them appear alongside Crazy Dave and three Wall-nuts on what appears to be The Great Wall of China.
- Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 incorrectly calls Wall-nut looking plants "Tallnuts". These plants look like Wall-nuts, roll like Wall-nuts, and are exclusively on a map called Wall-nut Hills, so this was likely a mistake.
- This error was fixed in Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville, and these plants are correctly called "Wall-Nuts".
