Your fuchsia is producing berry-like seed pods. Birds will sometimes eat the fruit, but if you remove it, you'll encourage additional flowering on your fuchsia. I try to remove the developing seed pods whenever I find them. Otherwise they fall on the patio and make a berry big mess! Enjoy your fuchsia!
