Re: peony seed?

My guess would be the peanuts are fertile seeds and the crescents are misfires.

I left a couple of blooms on the tree peony to form seed in case I consider
doing anything with it. They've finally swolen enough to pop open, but I
don't know what's what in there. There are rows of tiny little crescent
shaped seeds in there but there are also some shiny brown peas in there,
about the size of a spanish peanut. So what's what here?

The Paeonia obovata (re Patriotic Peony) bright red seeds are similar to
this shiny brown one and are now falling to the ground. Is this fresh seed
ready for planting or does it need to be aged? Would it then shrivel and
need to be opened to retrieve seed?

Anyone ever worked with these before?
