The pods will open into flowers. If the flowers are pollinated the petals will fall off and seeds will form. You can collect the seeds and plant them if you like. The seeds will need a cold stratification. Collect the seeds, place them in moist sand, put them in a plastic baggie and set them in your refrigeratore over the winter months, then plant them outdoors in the spring. Or, plant them in moist sand in containers now and set them outdoors. They won't sprout until next spring. Either way, at least some of them will germinate and develop into new yucca plants.
