What is the difference between a seed pod and a fruit, as far as the database is concerned? In my mind they are the same thing. I am wondering why they are separate in the database.

I agree, but I suspect many folks differentiate between fleshy seed pods (fruits) and hard fibrous seed pods found on many flowering plants.
