On Sunday, Daisy Mae will walk around on your Island in the morning, selling her turnips. She sells them in bundles of 10 and the price ranges with each visit. It’s recommended to buy each for less than 100 Bells. The recommended purchase price is 40-95 Bells. Buy as many as you can.

Note: She will leave the island on Sunday afternoons, so make sure you purchase before that time.

How To Sell Turnips in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Timmy and Tommy purchase turnips at Nook’s Cranny any day except on Sundays. The price changes twice per day and can spike very high, therefore it’s recommended to constantly check their buying price.

You need to buy in bulk to make it big time.

The recommended price to sell is 300+ Bells, however, if you’re tight on time, you should sell once you’re not losing any Bells. You can also visit other players’ islands to check out the buying rates. You will often come across people with good buying rates on the net. Load up the turnips in your pocket and travel to their island to leave a dent in the Nook family’s wallet.

What NOT To Do

Make sure to sell before the next Sunday

One of the biggest mistakes Animal Crossing: New Horizons players will make is hoarding turnips and waiting for a good price to sell. If you waste time, you’ll end up disappointed, especially if you purchased a large amount of the vegetable.

Turnips will spoil if you keep them for too long, that’s why you need to sell them before the next Sunday hits. If you’re a time traveler, keep reading below.

Do not time travel into the past

A lot of players will time travel back and forth. If you’re stocking up on turnips to make a profit, you better be careful. Time-traveling back a day or further will leave you with rotten turnips. However, it is safe to time travel into the future without having them rot. To be on the safe side, it’s better if you don’t time travel too much and cross the next Sunday when you’re supposed to buy again.
