Plant Food (ひとくいばな ちたい lit. Man-eating Flower Zone in Japanese) is the eleventh level and is the first level of the third warp room in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back. It is the third and final stream-themed level in the game. Similarly to Hang Eight, there's a time trial challenge after reaching the first checkpoint crate. If the player completes the level before time runs out, he will acquire the yellow gem. At least one Aku Aku is required to complete the time trial challenge. It is also the third level in which Crash rides the jet board.

Translation of Aku Aku Hints in the Japanese Version
- So, the place with many man-eating flowers is difficult.
- The level's name could mean that since Crash gets eaten by plants, he is "plant food". Either that or because of the fact that this level is chock full of plants.
- This is the only stream level it has a Nitro Switch Crate on main route
- Sometimes the time trial will not start upon reaching the first checkpoint. To fix this, the player must exit the level and then reload the file.
