When I pick up an apple from the garden, it is rather hard.
If I then wait for 2 weeks, it becomes _ _ _ , which means it is not hard anymore, and not as tasty because the food's texture has changed.
What is the word I am looking for here? (this kind of texture, preferably not just for food)
In French I would say mou, in Japanese 柔らかい.
But the proposed translations "soft" and "pliable" do not seem to convey the concept.
