This ACNH turnips guide goes in-depth on everything there is to know about turnips including how to get turnips, how to store turnips, when turnips spoil, turnips prices, and dispelling myths about growing turnips.
What are Turnips and what do they do in ACNH?
If you bought an abundance of turnips, you may be wondering where to put them. Well, you can’t put them in your house inventory, but you can just leave them on the floor. Yes, really, just leave them on the floor in your house until you want to sell.
You invest in the turnips like stocks so it’s called the Stalk Market!
Like in Animal Crossings before, these turnips go bad after a week, so after you invest, you have a whole week to sell them. Timmy and Tommy won’t buy them on Sunday, so you must sell turnips before the following Sunday on any other day (you can’t sell them in the drop-off box, though.)
When you decide to sell is entirely up to you, but keep an eye out for higher rates. Timmy and Tommy will sometimes offer fewer Bells than you paid for your turnips. Try to avoid this at all costs.
Turnip rates are usually at their highest on Tuesday, so try at least check then! They’re not guaranteed to sell highest then, though. We once saw turnips going for 445 Bells on a Wednesday afternoon.
How to Grow Turnips
You CANNOT grow turnips. So make sure you’re buying them from Daisy Mae every Sunday.
