If they were on your porch, I suspect they have already received the cooling they require. Go ahead and plant them now, then mark the spots where you plant them. They may come up immediately or they may wait until next spring. In either case, they will have a better chance of surviving if they're in the ground rather than in your refrigerator.

Best of luck with your tulips!
