    I have a nice magnolia tree and this year for the first time has produced seeds. if those red capsicums are not seeds what are they?
    Do you know if I must collect them to use them? What shall I do with them ? They look beautifull anyway!

    TIA

    Athenaues,

    are you talking about the pods?

    What do you want to do with them?
    Do you want to grow new one's?

    It sounds like the grandiflora magnolia, These are really beautiful because the seed pods open and show bright red seeds,

    I've never tried growing magnolia from seed, but it could be a fun early spring challenge
