The correct time to collect the seed is the Fall (Autumn) so about now seems right. For more advice check out the link ...

The first stage of the burning bush seeds should look like little bombs/fish. These will split open to reveal a growing red spherical object. Wait until these inner seeds get quite large. When you pick them, you will find a little hard sphere/seed inside them. I do not know if this coating should be removed though....
