Can You Bury Turnips in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

One of the things that can be found in the game named Animal Crossing New Horizons or ACNH is turnip. They are available to be purchased from the turnip seller named Daisy Mae that will land on your island every Sunday morning from 5 AM to 12 PM. The price to get one varies, ranging from 90 Bells to 110 Bells. Feel free to buy these in stacks of 10. After purchasing from Daisy Mae, you will then have to sell them before the next Sunday comes, unless you want them to rot with no value.

Compared to the other items that you find in the game, turnips are different as there is no way for them to be placed in the storage of your home. If you fail to sell the turnips before the next Sunday, it would be an issue for you as no one wants an island that has rogue vegetables. If this kind of situation happens to you, you might want to store them.

There are a few ways to store the turnips and one of them is to bury them in the ground. In order to bury the turnips on the ground, the first thing that you have to do is to dig a hole. You can do it by using a shovel. When a hole is ready, it is time for you to drop the turnips in. When the process of burying the turnips is done, you will be able to see the pattern on the ground which is similar to the one that you see when you cross fossils and bamboo shoots.

Can You Bury Turnips in Animal Crossing

Burying the turnips is different compared to planting them. What makes it different is that it will produce nothing. Even though nothing is produced, a lot of players still do it as it is an alternative when they have so much turnips but they are not allowed to place them in the house storage and they also do not want to have them on the floors of their home. While some people find it beneficial, it is actually not recommended due to the fact that it will be hard for you to dig up. Not only that, the disadvantage is that it makes the island look less attractive.

Before burying the turnips to store them, you should be aware that the burying method will not prevent them from rotting when Sunday morning comes. It is the reason why the players like you are encouraged to dig them up and sell them to Timmy and Tommy by visiting the Nook’s Cranny. Make sure to do it before Daisy Mae comes the next Sunday morning.

If you want to sell turnips in Animal Crossing New Horizons or ACNH, you should ask Tommy the current price first. For your information, there are two separate turnip prices offered by ones who run Nook’s Cranny (Tommy and Timmy) every day. The first one is before 12 PM midday and the second one is after midday. Every day, there are always two different prices offered by the shop. If you want to get a decent profit, you should guess which one is the highest price each week and which one that benefits you more. In just a week, there are a total of 12 different prices.

The second thing that you have to do is to ask your friends about their turnip prices, looking for the chance of getting a decent profit. In addition, there is also a turnip exchange site that will inform you of the current price and will help you to gain more profit.
