The fruit is the cone-like spherical structure that holds the brightly colored berries with the seeds inside. There are many varieties of magnolia but none are specified in your question. The most common is the magnolia below. Reputable sources did not say the fruit or seeds were poisonous, but rather, not very palatable. However, wildlife relish the berries and seeds. The berries are ripe when they are brightly colored (red for Southern magnolia, other varieties may be pink or orange).
