Feminized seeds have just as much variation in them as standard seeds. The only difference is the variation seen is only coming from one source, the female. It gives you insight into how stable or refined a given female is.
To the best of my knowledge, the Harlequin is still just an F1 line, not something that has been refined or worked for successive generations to bottleneck certain traits.
I wouldn't assume any degree of stability or similarity by default.
From what I have seen. When working with stable genetics and making fem seeds properly the seeds will be similar to the parent. Yes there is some variation. Similar is not the same as exact.
I've seen feminized seeds that were mutants,duds and with crazy variation too. I'm not disputing that. But a good breeder with stable genetics can and will produce seeds similar to the parent.
My hq cut is a stable one. There are plenty of people working with harlequin.
Anyway good luck AKSS. The results of your seeds depends on the work the breeder did and a little luck with the expression of phenotype
