Produce: winter squash, carnival squash

Back to Virtual winter market Produce: winter squash, carnival squash


Carnival squash is distinguished by its deeply furrowed top-shape and of course, its variegated patterns of orange and green colors. The Carnival squash's thick exterior contains spotted and striped colors of white, orange, yellow and green, depending on its level of maturity. The presence of post-harvest green coloring indicates that the squash is still at its peak maturity. As the squashes ages, it will eventually only maintain orange and cream colors. The raw flesh of the Carnival squash is firm, dry, and pale orange in color with a large and fibrous seed cavity. When cooked its texture is soft and melting with a fragrant aroma and its flavor; slightly nutty, buttery, and sweet with nuances of maple syrup, similar to that of butternut squash.
