Gherkin ‘Adam F1’ is an early, vigorous variety that develops beautiful smooth fruits 7-10 cm in length. The plants do not require pollination, making them the perfect choice for greenhouse cultivation. With their firm, crunchy flesh, these gherkins are ideal for pickling.

Follow up feeding is recommended after the first flush of flowers. Repeat after three weeks and again if necessary if the plants are showing signs of nitrogen deficiency. Yellowing and bronzing of the leaves can indicate potassium deficiency. Picking the fruits regularly at a young stage encourages a successive supply of new gherkins, extending the harvest over a longer period.
