What do I have?

About 5 years ago, I got some wild iris's from the state of Michigan.
They were growing wild on a relatives farm. I brought them home and 
planted them around the outside of the house. They were dug up once 
because the basement flooded when it rained. We had a drainage system 
installed and the iris's were replanted. This is the first year since 
that they have bloomed. Recently I noticed an odd thing. Five of the 
stems surrounding the tree in the front have a strange looking pod 
growing on them. It is green and looks like a small pickle about 4 to 
5 inches long. Is this a seed pod? I thought that Iris's grew from 
bulbs. As you can see,I know next to nothing about the flower. I just 
know that they are the so beautiful when they are in bloom.
