Tall-nut is a defensive plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2, obtained in Wild West. He costs 125 sun and has an identical recharge time of the Wall-nut, but also has twice as much health. Additionally, Tall-nut can also block most flying enemies from passing through, forcing them to eat him instead.

Tall-nut shares the role with Wall-nut as a buffer layer between other offensive plants and the incoming horde. Compared to Wall-nut, Tall-nut will have more trouble getting deployed in the early game due to increased cost but makes up for it with superior performance in the following level thanks to the significantly increased durability. Tall-nut's usefulness is also due to the plant's unique ability to block flying zombies and prevent them from creating chaos in the player's defense line.
Tall-nut can significantly boost the effectiveness of plants with limited attack range such as Spikeweed and Bonk Choy by holding the zombies in place for them to attack. Being a defensive plant, Tall-nut can also be instantly replaced with Wall-nut First Aid as long as there is visual degradation. Imitater can remedy Tall-nut's long recharge time issue - even then, however, Tall-nut should never be completely relied on in Endless Zones, as the massive amount of zombies can quickly overwhelm the plant. Tall-nut is also a decent choice for Save Our Seeds levels and preventing zombies from trampling flowers.
While the sequel has slightly buffed Tall-nut's health, it has become significantly less usable for a variety of reasons. The high cost and slow recharge time limit its usefulness in general. If fliers are not the primary problem then Primal Wall-nut is usually a better choice to quickly and cheaply defend all lanes. If fliers are the problem then Blover's improved ability makes it a strong option, or a single Infi-nut can block flying zombies across all lanes at the cost of a Plant Food. There are also an increased number of enemies that can instantly destroy plants, reducing the viability of defensive plants in general.
Avoid using Tall-nut in Neon Mixtape Tour as there are many zombies that can render him useless. Punk Zombies will push him back instead of eating him, Glitter Zombies, MC Zom-Bs and Arcade Zombies can all instantly destroy him without eating and Breakdancer Zombies can kick other zombies past him.

- In the 1.1.3 version of the Chinese version, if one obtained his costume, he will appear to have already gained armor.
- One of his costumes surprisingly resembles Monkey D. Luffy's straw hat and red striped tank top.
