That appears to be passiflora edulis... In either case... Yes, those pods do contain seeds. You will find these seeds very difficult to germinate. They need scarification (scratching to the seed coat) and stratification (about 4-6 weeks of temps between 37 and 50 degrees) before they will germinate. Even then, most will not sprout. In some cases you can take tip cuttings and propagate the plant asexually. If the vine sprouts multiple vines, then it is possible to split them given that you keep some roots on the split vine when you transplant. I recommend making a tea from the flowers. Very calming and relaxing. It is an ideal sleep remedy.
