    Chromoplasts are non-photosynthetic specialized plastids that are important in ripening tomato fruit (Solanum lycopersicum) since, among other functions, they are the site of accumulation of coloured compounds.

    Plastids are actually prokaryotes that live inside the eukaryote cells. They're kind of like another, smaller living organism. The transmission of its DNA into offspring follows different patterns and is really interesting.
