I have just dug out my calla lillies for the winter and there's a seed pod attached. I cannot
seperate the seeds, they seem to be only partially formed. Do I leave this pod on the plant or try to dry them some how?

If the seed pod is not ripe, the seeds will not germinate. Just cut it off.

Here's a pic of ripe berries which are probably fertile. The berries swell, are green and hard and when ripe the infructescence will droop. Z. aethiopica has berries that are orange and soft when ripe and the infructescence remains upright.
