This Dutch cheese looks like giant orange with rough, pitted skin. It is creamery, hard cheese made from cow's milk and it is actually a matured Edam coloured with carrot juice. After five months the cheese is firm, slightly oily, with a fruity aroma and nutty flavour. When aged the colour darkens to deep orange, the texture becomes hard, granular and brittle. It is fruity with a hint of orange zest. This cheese ripens in six to twelve months.
