The fruit is nothing to worry with, unless you plan on growing more of the plant from seeds. You can simply remove it.

There are two types of sago palms. One is edible and the other is poisonous. The Sago palm known as Metroxylon is edible, but the one most commonly seen and grown is known as Cycas revoluta, which is highly poisonous.
