Another magnolia fruit - id requested

I'm not sure how many magnolias I have here. I think these are both the same, but I don't have a matching set of flowers and fruit. I'd like to know what to call it. These are street trees in Vancouver's West End. They're deciduous.

This tree, on Haro west of Denman, has flowers that I described as being about 8 inches in diameter. It has no fruits now. The flower photos are from 2008; the others are from today.

This tree is on Haro at Cardero. I think it was planted at the same time as the first one, and I think that was in 2007 but it could have been the year before. I think I remember the flowers being similar. So I always thought they were the same. This one has some fruits.

Seven minutes - not a bad response time! Thanks, Ron. Gossler Farms Nursery describes it:
Quote:
Probably still our favorite large flowering hybrid. M. 'Caerhays Belle' is a hybrid of M. sargentiana 'Robusta' X M. sprengeri 'Diva' crossed and named at Caerhays Castle in Cornwall, England. The large, cup-shaped flowers are the richest pink imaginable. M. 'Caerhays Belle' can grow 3-4' a year into a 30-40' tree. The first flowers can be on an 8' tree.

Re: Another magnolia fruit - id requested

This was answered right away, back when it was posted. I'm just completing the picture. Here are the flowers from the same 'Caerhays Belle' tree posted in the first posting (second set of photos), on Haro at Cardero.
