For those who love to play the game by Nintendo known as Animal Crossing New Horizons or ACNH, you must be familiar with turnips. In the game, the term turnip is used to call the vegetable. It is also described as a unique type of flora. In addition, this iconic thing is also named as the main character at the stock market of the game called Stalk Market.
Every Sunday morning, there will be a wandering vendor appear around the town square on your island to sell turnips. The name of the wandering vendor is Daisy Mae. She is known as the granddaughter of the wandering vendor of the previous games named Joan. The turnips from Daisy Mae have different prices. This week, the turnips may cost 100 Bells, while the next week, they may cost 150 Bells. Feel free to buy turnips as many as you want. Purchasing as many turnips as you want is allowed as long as you have enough money.
After purchasing the turnips from Daisy Mae, the next thing that you have to do is to sell them. Your main aim should always be selling them for more than you purchased. To be able to be informed about the current price of the turnips, you can meet Timmy and Tommy in the Nook’s Cranny. Keep in mind that these two will be available at the store every day with the exception of Sunday. Just like the prices to purchase turnips from Daisy Mae, the prices to sell them also change. In just a day, the price changes two times, which is once at the midnight and another at noon.
Due to the fact that the prices that keep changing, you will be either earn profit or loss. Here is the example. You purchase 100 turnips from day Mae which each of them costs 100 Bells. It means you have made 10,000 Bells in investment. Now, if the selling price that is set by Timmy and Tommy is 150 Bells for each turnip, you will be able to get 5,000 Bells in profit if you sell them. What makes it interesting is that there is a possibility of the price to be increased into hundreds of thousands of Bells, making your wallet fat. On the other hand, it is also possible for you to loss. For instance, if you purchase each turnip 100 Bells and the selling price of turnip at Nook’s Cranny is or less than 50 Bells, it is clear that you are going to take a loss.
It should be noted that it is not recommended to hold onto the turnips until the following Sunday when Daisy Mae arrives in your town again as the turnips that you purchased before will be spoiled and worthless by the following week. In this kind of case, it is always better for you to sell them even if you lose a half. Remember that taking a lost a half is way better than losing the whole investment.
If you want to increase the price of turnips in Animal Crossing New Horizons or ACNH, then please do not try to spoil them and to sell them on the next week. If you are not sure when is the best time to purchase them, you can use the previous games of the same series as indications. Based on the previous titles, a solid investment is usually when Daisy Mae is selling turnips for less than 100 Bells.
Then, what about the best time to sell turnips? When is the best time to sell them? As for the best time to sell them, it is not easy to tell. In the previous games, it was such a rare case for the turnip prices to reach 800 Bells. Besides, there were also price patterns that could be used to tell you the best time to sell. In Animal Crossing New Horizons, the highest price is still unknown, which is a shame. If you want to play it safe, you are encouraged to consider a 50% return on your investment a win.
When deciding the best time to sell turnips, it is better for you to communicate with the other players. You will be able to find the players who ads their high turnips prices in the Animal Crossing subreddit. Not only that, there are a lot of homegrown Discord servers and Slack channels where you and the other players of the game are able to share the turnip prices with friends. Social media is clearly the best one to visit to check out the good price for turnips. It is better for you to do that throughout the entire process, which starts from Sunday morning, the time when Daisy Mae arrives to your town.
If you find one of the players happens to have a great turnip price in their town, do not waste your time and just go straight to their town to buy or sell turnips. In fact, to get the great prices, you do not have to rely on your town. However, do not even try to be greedy as the chance of ending up with a pile or rotten turnips is high.
For those who have made a big investment in turnips and are dreaming to get a big profit from selling them, it is time for you to predict the prices as it is actually possible to predict them since they are not really random. You will be able to predict the prices as long as you write down every one of your turnip prices for the week. As you probably know, there are a total of four possible turnip price trends. The first one is decreasing, the second one is random, the third one is small spike, and the last one is big spike. Please study about these trends to be able to get a decent profit. Once again, the best thing that you can do to get the best turnip selling prices is to track those prices and to ask your friends to do the same.
