Carnival squash is small to medium in size, averaging 12-17 centimeters in diameter, and is round and squat with deeply furrowed ridges and a rough, light brown stem.
The thick skin has a cream-colored base with variegated spots and striped hues of white, orange, yellow, and green, depending on its level of maturity. The flesh is firm, dry, coarse, and pale orange in color with a large and fibrous seed cavity with stringy pulp and many flat, beige seeds.
When cooked, Carnival squash is soft and tender with a fragrant aroma and is slightly nutty, buttery, and sweet with nuances of maple syrup, similar to butternut squash.
