The texture of cheese is determined by moisture content, which depends on the pressure with which it is packed as well as the length of time it has been aged. Semi-hard cheeses are firmer, sometimes a little crumbly, and usually good melting cheeses. Cheddar, Colby, Edam and Gouda are examples of semi-hard cheese varieties.
