If you are planning on making some Bells in Animal Crossing: New Horizons by dabbling in the Stalk Exchange, you might be wondering if you can plant turnips. Growing your own turnips would be a great way to earn some Bells, but unfortunately, it can’t be done. Turnips will not grow on your island, and it would seem that only Daisy Mae knows to make these grow at all.
If you want turnips, you will need to wait until Daisy Mae arrives each Sunday to sell you some. If you are wondering why Daisy Mae runs her business with such protective measures, it is because people like us try to cut her out of the loop. You don’t make friends in business. Sadly, Daisy Mae has us all over a barrel, and if you want Turnips, you have to get them from her.
You can buy your Turnips in stacks of 10 from Daisy Mae, then try to make a profit by selling them on to the Nooks.
How, and when, to sell Turnips
To sell your Turnips, you will need to visit Nook’s Cranny. They will offer a different price for Turnips each day, so be sure to check every day to see what the price is. Some days it will be less than you paid, some days it will be more. The trick is to sell on a day when you will make a good profit. There can be quite a swing in prices.
Some days you will be offered on a third of what you paid, and sometimes you will be offered twice what you are paid. The Nooks will buy Turnips every day except on Sunday, so don’t wait that long, or you can’t sell them, and the Turnips will rot.
To find out how much they are offering, talk to Timmy in Nook’s Cranny, then decide if you want to sell, or risk waiting to see what the price is tomorrow.
