I have a strawberry planter that I planted with last years runners, plenty green leaves and looks very healthy but has not had any fruit.   Should I expect it in the first year?

Seed collection

I am aiming to collect seed this year for next years summer plants.  Can you collect the seed pods as soon as the  petals have dropped from the flowers, the pod is still green or do you have to wait until the  pod dies back naturally , dries and bursts
