Sell Turnips When The Price Is High

Buy When Prices Are Below 100 Bells

The basic rule of making a profit is to buy low & sell high. Check how much it's selling at Nook's Cranny and only sell when it's significantly higher than your buying price.

Turnip Prices Change Twice A Day At Noon


(※) This is just an example price range for Turnips!!!

Turnip prices changes every day from between approximately 50 to 150 Bells. Note that the pricing of the turnips changes from morning and at noon (12:00 PM). You can check their sell price at Nook's Cranny.

Sometimes The Pricing Significantly Rises


▲The price of 1 turnip jumped to 420 bells!

If you are lucky, the price of turnips sometimes skyrockets (reaching as much as 4x the value of what you bought it for!). Visit Nook's Cranny and keep an eye on the price every day.

Turnip - Price Patterns

The following are just a few of the many patterns of how the pricing changes. Please use this info at your own risk!!!

There Are 4 Price Change Patterns


We've carried out several tests to monitor how the pricing of Turnips changes over time. In conclusion, there are 4 general patterns of how pricing changes; wavy, skyrocket, steady increase, and incline.

Pattern 1: Wavy Pattern

Pattern 1: Wavy Pattern

Price Goes Up & Down Everyday

In the Wavy pattern, the price fluctuates up and down every day. It's best not to rush and sell your turnips at the beginning of the week. For this pattern, sell Turnips when the price reaches three digits.

Pattern 2: Skyrocket Pattern

Pattern 2: Skyrocket Pattern

Price Sharply Rises

In the Skyrocket pattern, the price sharply and suddenly increases in the middle of the week. Sell fast before the price drops. If you see a price higher than 300, that's a go sign.

Pattern 3: Steady Increase Pattern

Pattern 3: Steady Increase Pattern

The Price Gradually Increases

In this pattern, you will see a steady increase of the price until a certain point. Once the price starts to fall, it won't come back up, so sell when you see a down trend.

Pattern 4: Declining Pattern

Pattern 4: Declining Pattern

Price Keeps On Dropping

This pattern is the worst pattern of all. If you don't see any price increase on Thursday or Friday, give up and go to another island to sell your Turnips.

Usually, your turnips spoil after 1 week has passed or if you change the time through the system settings. However, if you leave your turnips on another player's island and change the time to get the best turnip price, your turnips won't spoil!

Turnips can also be buried and stored underground around your island, though this method of storing turnips can be time-consuming.

New Horizons' Stock Market


Turnips are Animal Crossing: New Horizons' version of a stock market. Players can purchase turnips on Sunday and can start selling them for another price from the next day. The selling price of the turnips changes every day.

Turnips Spoil After 1 Week


Be careful not to hold your turnips too long since they rot 1 week after from purchase them. Make sure you sell them before 10pm on Saturday, since Nook's Cranny closes at that time! Once they're rotten, the price of 100 turnips will automatically drop to 100 bells (1 turnip = 1 bell).

Turnips Spoil If You Move Time Backward

If you change the time backwards even by 1 minute using the Nintendo Switch System Settings, your Turnips will rot.
