Adam is a high yielding variety of smooth-skinned, mini seedless cucumbers, best picked when 3 – 4″ (8 – 10 cm) long. It produces straight and uniform fruit that has a mild, sweet flavour and a very crisp texture. They make great snackers because they have tender skins which do not need to be peeled and can be eaten as is. Adam does not rely on pollination making it a perfect choice for greenhouse growers.
