"You can't see chloroplasts in an onion skin cell since the onion was underground. When the onion is underground, the sun can't reach the onion so the onion skin cells can't make glucose. The onion does have chloroplasts in its cells at the top of the onion. That's where he sunlight can reach the onion."

to sum his up: of course you can see chloroplasts in the "onion cells" - just not the fruit. same goes for tree stems, potatoes, roots and plums. ;-)

Ya, misszippy7 is right, since onions are so underground you've probably never heard, alone even seen their chloroplast. Other parts of the cell are really mainstream. They've been done before.
