"Fire seeds are used in certain potions. It is advisable to make sure that the fires on the bushes that bear them are thoroughly extinguished before picking."
Folio Bruti on the fire seed bush[src]

Fire seeds (also spelled fireseeds) were the seeds from the fire seed bush. They were used as ingredients in certain potions,[3] including the Fire-Breathing Potion,[2] and the Antidote to Uncommon Poisons.[3] When fire seeds were thrown into a fire, they emitted a great burst of heat, which can be used in the final stage of hatching dragon eggs.[1]

As the seeds were as hot as fire while still attached to the plant, they had to be first be cooled down before collecting them. The fastest way this could be done was by chilling the seeds, such as with the Freezing Spell.[3] Alternatively, the seeds can be removed from the plant, such as with the Knockback Jinx, and would cool down after waiting a while.[1]

Rubeus Hagrid used these seeds to hatch the egg of his baby dragon, Norbert in 1992.[1]
