At the beating heart of the stock market in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the humble turnip, and to get the most out of your cash crop, we have all you need to know about the Animal Crossing turnip price calculator and how to get the best price for turnips.


We'll assume by your being here that you're already quite invested in the game, and know that every Sunday in Animal Crossing you can buy turnips from Daisy Mae.

If not, then you can find her walking across your island between 4am to 12pm selling turnips from her Stalk Market at a price between 90 and 110 bells for 10. This fool doesn't realise, however, that you can beat her at her own game.

Your turnip crop will rot in a week's time if you don't sell them, so you've got to move them fast if you want to cash out.

Your only means of doing this is by selling them to Timmy and Tommy at Nook's Cranny, but you've got to be careful – the prices fluctuate every morning and then again at 12pm, so you only have two windows of opportunity before Daisy Mae ruins your topline.

But how do you know what the best time is to sell your turnips? Are you getting the best price? Fortunately, the game has been rigged by the turnip calculator, and we'll divulge all below.

Poor Daisy Mae, the turnip bailiffs are probably taking away her crops as we speak.

How do you predict turnip prices in Animal Crossing?

If you fancy yourself a mathematical genius, you could try and memorise the intricate patterns in Animal Crossing turnip prices. Perhaps you'll crack this system wide open and exploit it for all its worth. Or you could use a turnip calculator instead, which is a lot easier and faster.

Our resident Animal Crossing superfan vouches for the wonderfully named Turnip Prophet, a real-life website that will accurately predict your whole week's worth of turnip prices. All you need to do is put in some basic information: is this your first time buying turnips? What was the price of turnips from Daisy Mae this week? What was the price pattern last week?

Just put in the info that you can, and the almighty Turnip Prophet will crunch the numbers and tell you when is the best time to sell. This is a free service run by fans, and it could help your character become filthy rich.

What is a good price for turnips in Animal Crossing?

The best price you will ever get for turnips is 650 Bells in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, so keep your eyes peeled for numbers that get close to that mouthwatering figure.

The worst turnip price you're ever likely to see is 15 bells, which is nothing short of insulting in all honesty. Don't they know how much hard work we're putting into this?

The main thing to remember is that you bought these turnips for no more than 11o Bells. As long as you turn a profit each week, you'll soon become a very wealthy islander. A house full of turnips and a bit of online faff is a small price to pay for such immense wealth. If only real life was that easy.
