Cheddar is an English semi-hard cheese made from cows' milk and gets its name from the Cheddar Caves in Somerset, UK where it was first stored in the 15th Century.  There are 6 main varieties of Cheddar - mild, medium, mature, extra-mature, vintage and West Country Farmhouse Cheddar. The main difference between them is the time they are aged – usually from 2 months for mild to 24 months for vintage.

Depending on how aged individual cheeses are, the taste ranges from very mild to tangy, the colour from almost white to mid yellow and the texture from very smooth to crumbly. There are also varieties now produced with extra flavourings and Cheddar is now made in many countries. An excellent cheese for both eating and cooking.
