What does POD FERTILE mean?

Spring City, TN

Saw this phrase on the Marietta Daylily website under good "breeders." Does it mean seeds breed true?

Melvindale, MI(Zone 5a)

It means that the plant will set a pod when the flower is fertilized. In the pod seeds will form. A lot of plants are not pod fertile so it is good for hybridizers that a plant is pod fertile.
