No Angel Trumpet pods on my plant? I want pods but it isn't producing any. Can you help me please?

I have a variegated peach and white angel trumpet that is as tall as my house. The stalks are like small trees and I need a chain saw to cut them back at the end of the year. I love this plant! My question is...I've had this plant for almost 10 yrs and it blooms twice a year, but I have only seen ONE seed pod in that whole time!  How do I "coax" it into giving me seed pods?

Hi, My guess is that you have a hybrid form that won't form seed pods or if it does, they won't be viable. i'd take stem cuttings to propagate this plant.
