Feminized seed size vs regular seed size

I just received fem and regular seed of the same cultivar from a seed bank and the fem seeds were much larger than the regular seeds.
No original packaging (i requested)

What's do you think would be the cause?

Highly suspect?

hey!
other than the reg seeds being immature like being very pail in color to almost white. that would indicate the seed was harvested too early. if the seeds look healthy and dark in color then it is most likely that the feminized plant had less seeds per plant because it is harder to produce as much pollen on a female plant then it is on a male plant.
so the selfed plant could put more energy into making the seeds much larger in a short amount of time then a heavily seeded male pollinated plant.


peace!

The only reason is the temperature, in cold weather seeds are smaller. I've produced seeds from the same clone in summer and in winter and the winter one are smaller.

All bullshit. Every cross is different and so are the seeds. Seeds that were made by selfing one plant will of course come out differently than the ones made by outcrossing/hybridizing with a totally different plant.

Seed size would be dictating by the bract size, mystic has a good point but my money is the female they decided to use has larger bracts than the one/ones used for the regular version or produced at a time that promoted larger bracts than the other.

I double reversed a Cookies Kush x Jack Herer. The seeds which developed on the Cookies were huge while those on the Jack were tiny. Yes it was due to calyx size, as the Jack has much smaller calyx's than the Cookies Kush. The genetics are the same either way.

If they're made from the same mom they should be the same no matter what since the mom makes the seeds n they tend to stick with how they do.
Pollen from 50 different sources shouldn't ever change the seed a single plant produces.

Probably it ain't that easy! These seeds on the picture were collected from one plant, which was dusted with pollen from itself (Sensi Skunk) and from a GSC plant. Obviously, the mother plant doesn't care about any of the theories.
