    The chromoplast is a plastid inside a plant cell responsible for giving colour to the petals of a flower or the fruit produced. This pigmentation plastid's actions help attract insects to aid in pollination.

    ~Chromoplasts are plastids responsible for pigment synthesis and storage. ~Chromoplasts, found in coloured organs of plants such as fruit and floral petals, to which they give their distinctive colors. ~ associated with a massive increase in the accumulation of carotenoid pigments. ~conversion of chloroplasts to chromoplasts in ripening tomato fruit is a classic example.
