The seed pods are a lot of fun--especially when they resist being pulled off--ouch. They also smell just delightful (at least the plant lets you know it's not good to eat). But if you don't remove them (a) your plant will stop flowering, and (b) you'll end up with a Datura plantation.
Welcome to my garden...just proceed with caution.
