Magnolia Tree seeds

Anderson, TX(Zone 8a)

Does anyone know how to identify or harvest seeds from Magnolia Pods?

According to the book "Making more plants; the science, art, and joy or popogation" by Ken Druse:

"A magnolia's scarlet seeds should be harvested before their fruits reveal them; but these slow-to-sprout seeds could be sown "green," not completely ripe, a strategy that works in a few cases."

Chooch gave extra advice on magnolias in this thread:
