Purple Tulip Sells For 240 Bells

Purple tulips can be sold for 240 Bells at Nook's Cranny. Selling flowers is not one of the most efficient ways of making Bells fast, so it's not recommended to sell them.

Chances Of Growing Purple Tulip

Time & method is according to our team's gameplay experience and may not be the same with yours.

Grew Purple Tulips In 1 Week

The team was able to grow purple tulips within one week. Orange tulips are easy to breed but growing purple tulips takes longer since they grow by chance.

Breeding black tulips with black tulips also yields purple sometimes (still randomly but in my experience it has been more frequent than with orange)
