A semi-hard cows' milk cheese made only in Cornwall. Before being left to mature, this cheese is carefully wrapped in nettle leaves to form an edible rind.
This unique coating gives Yarg its unique flavour, described by some as "a delicate, almost mushroom like." As well as the taste of the nettles, an interesting flavour is added by the mould allowed to grow on the cheese, which is not harmful.
The texture varies from creamy and soft immediately under the nettle coating to a Caerphilly cheese-like crumbly texture in the middle.
