The coloration of the different tissues in plants is due to the plastids which are present in the cells. Leucoplasts are white in colour, chloroplasts are green in colour and chromoplasts are of various colours. These plastids can take any colour at different time. Therefore, green fruits ( chloroplasts) turn colurful (chromoplasts) at maturity.
