The Tulip, or Turbo Tulip,[1][2] is a special type of flower in Yoshi's Story. When a Yoshi attempts to eat the Tulip, the Yoshi is turned into a Yoshi's egg. This form can be used to reach other places that are otherwise inaccessible. The player aims the egg by using the Control Stick and releases it to launch the Yoshi. After enough time has passed, the Yoshi returns back to its normal self. Additionally, the player can press the C Button to cancel the form and change the Yoshi back to normal. After the Yoshi eats the head of the flower, the flower's head grows back.

In the Nintendo 64 Mario Golf, various Tulips make a cameo on the Mario's Star golf course.
