Turnips make the world go around in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and, every Sunday morning, Daisy Mae will visit your deserted island paradise to let you invest in Sow Joan’s Stalk Market.
Daisy Mae is helping her Gram-Gram Joan out, her granddaughter having now succeeded the elderly brown boar in the role that she played in past Animal Crossing games.
Every Sunday morning you will have the chance to buy the garden-grown Turnips that Daisy Mae has for sale. While the root vegetable is “good for picklin’ or stewin’,” these Turnips are for selling not eating.
The idea is that you buy Turnips from Daisy Mae and, as the week progresses, their price will fluctuate upwards and downwards. You want to wait for your chance to sell them for as much profit as possible. If you get your timing right, Daisy Mae explains that they can be “mighty nutritious for your bank account.”
The Turnips are sold in bundles of 10, but their price for each player is different. This encourages you to compare Turnip Prices with your friends, to then head to whoever’s island has the lowest price to stock up.
You will be able to sell them to Timmy in Nook’s Cranny when you feel like it’s the right time, but you need to make sure that you sell them within a week. Keep them longer than one week and they will become rotten, so be sure to sell them before you reach the next Sunday after you bought them.
Sold at the right time, you will be able to turn a profit on your investment in Turnips. Leave it too long, and you may end up missing when they’re at their highest Turnip Price for that week.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
