okra seed

Over the past few days the Okra pods have slowly been drying out. As they dry the sides split (lower one in the picture)
and then they are easy to crack open. The seeds fall out in abundance.
Some have a reddish hue; I wonder if those are from the burgundy variety? the pods are mixed up from both kinds of plants so I don't know.
It seems like a lot of seed from each pod but I don't think this would even make one cup of "coffee" once roasted and ground...
