Go ahead and remove the seed pods,unless you are planning on saving the seeds for later. By deadheading the flowers once spent and any seed pods, you will encourage your fuchsia to continue to bloom. A plant's objective is survival of the species. Seeds serve this purpose. Energy spent developing seeds can be better spent creating new flowers for your enjoyment.
