Apparently, These Mesmerizing Ice Cream Tulips Are A Thing And They’re Making People Hungry

Spring is a wonderful time when nature wakes up from winter’s slumber and countless beautiful flowers begin to blossom. For decades, one particular flower, the tulip, has been celebrated all over with its own festival. Held in such countries as the US, Canada, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Australia, India, England, and many others, tulip festivals have become an important announcement that spring has finally come.

There’s a variety of tulips that looks too delicious to be real and they are called ‘ice cream’ tulips

Sadly, this year is a bit different. With all of the public gatherings being canceled, only a few will be able to witness the beauty of blossoming tulips with their own eyes. At least we can admire their beauty through our screens.

In case you aren’t familiar yet, here is one of the most beautiful varieties of tulip, called “ice cream” tulips.

These beautiful flowers got their name not by some peculiar accident.

In fact, they truly resemble ice cream and look just good enough to eat. Don’t believe me? See for yourself!

These tulips can be easily recognized by their light pink leaves with a white “ice cream scoop” on top.

While a normal tulip has six petals, ice cream tulips have at least twice the amount.

Arguably, they probably are also twice as beautiful as any other tulip, too.

Unsurprisingly, these tulips are also quite rare and unique. They grow as tall as 12 – 16 inches and blooms in late April and early May.

Please don't ever sit, stand or walk in the flower fields when you want to take pictures or enjoy their beauty. Too many people ignore the signs saying this is forbidden! It's really harmful to the flowers.

I think here(in the Netherlands) the tulip fields actually are meant to be looked at and to sit in. The fields which are in bloom are especially for multiplying the bulbs. Flowers are harvested before they bloom.
