I've been reviewing some cuke seeds for next summer. The Adam F-1 hybrid has caught my eye, as the fruits are only 2-3 inches long and are resistant to many of diseases quite common in my area. My question is this: the catalogue claims that the plants are "parthenocarpic" which means they produce seeds without pollination, then would seeds harvested from said plants be viable, even though it is an F1 hybrid? Would this variety even have seeds?

Thanks so much for your help!! clp

Parthenocarpic cukes won't contain seeds at all Sarah. They bear fruit without pollination. 'Diva' is a good example of this.
