Here is what the inside of a seed pod looks like right after the flower has faded.
I did not pollinate this flower, but maybe a bee did, I don't know...
From the uniformity of the proto-seeds, my guess is that the ovules had not been fertilized.
One of the most enlightening experiments I performed in my earliest days of hybridizing was to make a number of expendable crosses and dissect one of the developing pods each week. This not only provided insight to the developmental process, but established a baseline for subsequent postmortems of aborted pods.
