The new Halloween update for Animal Crossing : New Horizons is here! There are a whole bunch of new things that have been added including a bunch of spooky fun that will be enjoyed by all. While you dress in your new costumes and the available Nook Mile options, you can also venture out into a new garden which will feature large orange squash for you to harvest.
Where to find pumpkins
To get pumpkins in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you’ll need to go to Nook’s Cranny or talk to Leif in October. For Nook’s Cranny just head over to the seed area and in the miscellaneous section you can per Pumpkin Starter for 250 bells. If Leif is you, you can talk to him and he should have them available for 140 bells each!
Leif is obviously the best option because he sells them much cheaper. However, it won’t always be there and you may want to start planting your pumpkins as soon as possible. If so, go to Nook’s Cranny and buy some. You probably have a lot of bells right now, so spending a little more on that new item shouldn’t be a big deal.
Pumpkins grow in four different colors: orange, green, yellow, and white. The color is random, so you’ll have to wait and see what you get when she grows up. You can plant them in the ground from your inventory, and in a few days you’ll have a harvestable pumpkin (don’t forget to water them). These gourds are then used in fun party recipes that will provide you with spooky new items to put in your home!
