General Information

The word tulip, which earlier in English appeared in such forms as tulipa or tulipant, entered the language by way of French tulipe and its obsolete form tulipan or by way of Modern Latin tulīpa, from Ottoman Turkish tülbend, "muslin, gauze". (The English word turban, first recorded in English in the 16th century, can also be traced to Ottoman Turkish tülbend.)
Bulbs crushed and mixed with honey: External use only to relieve noxious swellings such as boils, ulcers (decubita), lymphatic nodules, and cancers
Bulb - cooked. It can be dried and ground into a powder and then mixed with cereals when making bread etc.

Some chefs consider the fresh petals of a tulip edible and use them in salads or on tea sandwiches.
