No Im not sure those are seed pods,, im a first time grower. Actually,, , I squeezed one of those seed pods on sat and there was nothing in it.. I figured there would be something growing in it by now but there is still no visible signs of a brown seed. And I thought I was very careful in removing the males early enough before they popped. So please take a close look at all my posts and see if you can tell because I cannot! That would be awesome news!!!
