Red turnips are a type of turnip only in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk. They are bought from Joan for a sum of 1,000 Bells once per week every Sunday. However, some weeks Joan will not have red turnips, and the player will be unable to buy them.
Red turnips start as seedlings that must be placed in the ground like saplings. Over time they will grow, but only if watered every single day. If the player misses a day, the turnips will rot, and will not sell for very much money at all. However, in City Folk, if the player misses a day, they can water the wilted turnip with a silver watering can, which can bring red turnips back to life.
Unlike other things in the ground, you can't move a red turnip the traditional way. Instead, to remove the red turnip, you have to dig it out with a shovel.
A full-size red turnip sells for a maximum of 16,000 Bells, making a profit of 15,000. Tom Nook will buy the different size Red Turnips for the following prices:
|One day of growth||20 Bells|
|Two days of growth||100 Bells|
|Three days of growth||500 Bells|
|Four days of growth||2,000 Bells|
|Five days of growth||4,000 Bells|
|Six days of growth||8,000 Bells|
|Seven+ days of growth||16,000 Bells|
You can continue watering red turnips beyond seven days, but you won't get any additional growth or profit out of them.
