I have a question..from which part you can get the seeds. I have the fruit but i dont have any idea if they came from that, and how long i need to wait before i break out the fruit.(if the seeds are in the fruit)

The seeds are found inside the sausage-like fruit, which is very fibrous and difficult to break open. I did collect a couple of them when I took the picture of this tree, but never went about collecting the seed. I tried using a knife and a machete, but with no luck, perhaps the fruit wasn't ripe.
