They have dark-green, hard skin with speckles and stripes and a round flat shape. Generally they are 15-20 cm in diameter and weigh about 1.5kg. The flesh is a fine-textured orange to dark yellow with a slightly sweet flavour. Immature buttercups have a paler flesh. The skin is softer than other pumpkin or squash types and therefore they have a shorter shelf life.
