Noticed something interesting on my most recently acquired Japanese Black Pine.
Are these flowers?
Male or female?
Could anyone share their experiences in how to get a pine bear fruit, or cones, that is ;)

Buds are green or greenish yellow, but these are more like brown. There are tens and tens of buds (big old tree), and these two don't fit in. Maybe they are cones in the making? I understand it takes a few years to mature.

Yup, these are gymnosperms to be more precise, pines do not produce flowers.
