Magnolia Tree Questions

Ben Cook
last year

A few questions. First, what type of Magnolia is this gigantic tree? (Pictures taken in Spring) Second, it's dropping these tiny cucumber looking fruit - like thousands of them! (Picture Taken in July) It is NOT a cucumber magnolia though I don't think because the flowers are large, showy and white. It is also beginning to make seed pods on the tree. (Also taken in July - but I've seen these before and they get a lot bigger) My question is how come I have never seen it drop these "mini-cucumber" fruits before? Is my tree ok?

PS: I live in upstate NY.
