Nintendo’s Animal Crossing: New Leaf contains several money-making opportunities, with turnips one of the riskier means of earning bells. These precious vegetables can boost a person’s virtual bank account if he or she knows how to play the “Stalk Market.” That said, these beginner's tips will help you “turnip” a profit; we know, terrible.
-On Sundays, look for Joan the boar and strike up a conversation. Keep in mind she only sells turnips on Sundays.
-The price of turnips changes. For instance, we bought ours at 109 bells per turnip.
-Joan sells turnips in bunches of 10.
-Turnips automatically rot after one week.
-Turnips will also rot if you mess with the 3DS system’s internal clock, aka time shifting.
-You can eat turnips if you feel the urge.
-Visit Reese at Re-Tail to sell your turnips. The price goes up and down daily except Sundays when prices are not set.
-Reese will not buy turnips on Sundays.
-Take advantage of high sell prices. Today (6/7), Reese buys turnips for 215 bells a piece. Tomorrow could be much lower. Sometimes it’s best to avoid gambling.
