Anonymous added on October 2, 2014 | Answered

One of my calla lily plants in my outdoor garden has a grape-like cluster within the flower. What is this? Could it be seeds for new plants? Any help with this is appreciated!

This is the seedpod, which should be left to ripen on the plant before collecting for seed propagation. If it's already yellow and feels soft, then it should be ripe enough to use. Take out the seeds and allow them to dry out some (Note: they may require rinsing with water to remove pulp). They can then be stored after drying or planted right away. Keep in mind that they take longer to mature when planted this way verses offsets. Here is more info: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/calla-lily/calla-lily-seed-info.htm
