Variant of Egg Plant

Sanbo Flowers are a type of Egg Plant that spit out Needlenoses, first appearing in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. If Yoshi has six eggs, it cannot spit any Needlenoses out. In Yoshi's Island DS, they can be viewed in the Island Museum. Sanbo Flowers reappear in Yoshi's New Island, during Kamek's battle in Slime Drop Drama. Unlike previous games, Sanbo Flowers spit out yellow Needlenoses, and are even spat out when Yoshi has six eggs.
