Daisy Mae’s prices for turnips will fluctuate every Sunday, but you shouldn’t always pull the trigger on taking some off her hands. Every now and again, the turnips will be overpriced, reducing your chances of turning a profit when you sell them on.

Here’s a general outline of the good prices to buy turnips:

  • >50 Bells: Very high chance of profit
  • 50–80 Bells: High chance of profit
  • 80–100 Bells: Good chance of profit
  • 100–120 Bells: Low chance of profit
  • 120-140 Bells: Very low chance of profit
  • 140+ Bells: Extremely low chance of profit

It’s generally accepted that any price below 100 Bells is worth investing in. While this still doesn’t guarantee that you’ll make a profit, it does increase your chances of being able to sell them on for more Bells.

If Daisy Mae is selling turnips for slightly above 100 Bells, you should also consider purchasing. However, purchasing turnips at the 150 Bell mark greatly reduces your chances of profiting, so it’s wise to reconsider purchasing at this point.
