My Epiphyllum hookeri has set three of these. Are they fruit or young seed pods. If fruit I "assume" there will be seeds inside??

The fruit is an unripe seedpod. Edible? Probably not to humans.

Yes it bloomed..in the second pic you can see the spent bloom still attached.

So adding to the DB I should label it as fruit??

Yes, it's the fruit and we could use pic's for the database. My Hooker's Orchid Cactus (Epiphyllum hookeri) which I planted in-ground at our other house used to occasionally get fruit after blooming.
