The Plant Species Z Fruit is an item in the Aberration DLC of ARK: Survival Evolved.

It can only be obtained by growing Plant Species Z. Once fully grown, the plant will produce Plant Species Z Fruit.


The fruit can be thrown like a Grenade Grenade.

While it does no damage, it explodes upon impact into a flash of light similar to a flashbang, blinding anyone and any lesser creature within the vicinity and looking at the direction of the fruit. The blinding effect lasts for approx. 10 seconds (for humans).

Blinded dinos cannot be mounted.

The following dinos are unphased by the blinding effect:

Reapers and Nameless are still affected by charge light effect given out by the Plant Z.


  • Most of the higher-leveled dino takes shorter time for the flash effect to wear off, and both bosses and Alpha Predators are unphased by it.
  • Throwing one at the ground when grabbed by a Karkinos Karkinos or Kaprosuchus Kaprosuchus will stun it, forcing it to drop you and allowing you time to move out of its reach.
  • In official PvE servers, Plant Z does not affect wild and allied/enemy dinos and players.
