Seeds in corkscrew vines?

I have no idea where the seeds in my corkscrew vine are. I know that seeds form in the flower, but mine fall off without seeds forming. Are the seeds a rarity, because I got the plant as a trade?

I did a search on corkscrew vines and found that some produce seeds and some don't. They are also hard to sprout but some people have a very good solution, nick the seed and soak overnight, then place in a plastic bag witha soaked paper towel and they will sprout in a few days. You can find all the information on this plant you will need by typing in corkscrew vine in the search box.

The seeds do not sprout in the flower they will grow off the vine itself you will notice the difference it will grow what looks like a string bean pod you will be able to see it.

I've had a corkscrew vine for a few years and this is the first time it's produced seed pods. They look like fat string beans.

Yep, they form just like any other bean does at the same point on the stem where the flowers were. Here are pictures I have posted several times on what the dried pods and seeds look like.
