It was Eve who first sinned by eating a fruit (often called an apple) from the tree of knowledge (it was Satan in the form of a serpent that convinced her to take the fruit God had told her not to), thus opening her mind to the knowledge of good and evil, then she gave the fruit to Adam who ate it also (thus choosing to sin as well).

So yes Adam is at fault for eating the fruit, but also for not putting God's word above all else. He did what Eve asked of him and not what God asked of him.
